DOT TAKES STEPS TO ‘BEAT THE SCHOOL JAM’Posted on Aug 25, 2016 in Main
O‘ahu commuters got some relief with several projects designed to keep traffic moving now that school is back in session. Governor Ige and Department of Transportation (DOT) officials announced several simpler traffic fixes as lower-cost alternatives to more expensive, large-scale highway projects.
Among the projects are a new shoulder lane in Kunia, a second Zipper lane from the H1/H2 merge to Pearl Harbor, a Farrington Highway contraflow, and adjustments in High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lane hours. The “Beat the School Jam” campaign includes radio commercials reminding people to plan ahead and use free traffic tools and apps such as MyGoAkamai, a free personalized alerting service tailored to your driving route.
