Posted on May 22, 2017 in Latest News

HONOLULU – The Hawaii Department of Transportation (HDOT) advises Oahu motorists that the westbound H-1 Freeway will be closed at night in the vicinity of the Radford Drive Overpass, to install a permanent variable message board sign. See closure details below.

Tuesday night, May 23, 2017, through Friday morning, May 26, 2017, nightly.

  • Three lanes will be closed (one lane open) in the westbound direction from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m.
  • Westbound H-1 Freeway will be closed from 11 p.m. to 4 a.m.
  • Nimitz Highway On-Ramp to the westbound H-1 Freeway will be closed from 11 p.m. to 4 a.m.

A full closure is necessary to install the message board sign, which will cross the westbound H-1 Freeway. Motorists traveling in the westbound direction will be directed to Kamehameha Highway as the alternate route. If possible, motorists are encouraged to stay on the H-201 Moanalua Freeway to bypass the airport viaduct and the work area.

HDOT advises motorists to prepare for the closures by checking traffic apps, mapping the best route, and adding extra travel time to their commutes.

Electronic message boards will be posted to warn motorists of the closures. Special Duty Police Officers will be on-site to assist with traffic control and safety procedures. Emergency vehicles, first responders and TheBus have been notified of the roadwork and will be allowed through the work zone.
