HDOT NEWS RELEASE: Weekend lane closures on Liliha Street scheduled for Friday, April 22

Posted on Apr 18, 2016 in Latest News

HONOLULU – The Hawaii Department of Transportation (HDOT) alerts the public that two southbound lanes will be closed on Liliha Street between Vineyard Boulevard and North King Street beginning at 9 a.m. on Friday, April 22, 2016 through 6 p.m. on Sunday, April 24, 2016 as part of the Liliha Street Rehabilitation project.

This is the second of three weekend closures necessary to complete the project. HDOT will notify the public in advance of the final weekend of work. Special duty police officers will be on site to assist with traffic flow. Electronic message boards will be placed in the area in advance of the weekend closure to alert drivers of the work.

During the closure, traffic will be contraflowed in the northbound lanes, providing motorists one travel lane in either direction through the project area. Left turns from Liliha Street to Vineyard Boulevard and North King Street will be restricted during this time. While one lane will remain open for drivers in both directions on Liliha Street, motorists can also use Aala Street or Palama Street as possible alternate routes. Construction crews will perform roadway reconstruction work that requires a continuous closure.

In addition to the weekend work, the Liliha Street Rehabilitation project will continue its regularly scheduled single southbound lane closure on Monday, April 18, 2016 through Thursday, April 21, 2016 from 9 a.m. through 3 p.m., daily, for new curb, gutter, and sidewalk installations as well as drainage improvements. All left turns will remain open. Roadwork is weather permitting.

Motorists are advised to plan ahead and drive with caution through the work zone. Lane closure information will be available on the HDOT website at http://hidot.hawaii.gov/highways/roadwork/. Updates are also released through our social media channels on Facebook and Twitter.
