DHHL News Release: Temporary Speed Bump Installation Scheduled for Kalāwahine

Posted on Jan 7, 2022 in Latest Department News, Newsroom

(Kalāwahine, Oʻahu) – The Department of Hawaiian Home Lands (DHHL), through its contractor HI-Built, LLC, will install two of three planned speed bumps, signs to reduce speed and new striping on Kapahu Street in the Kalāwahine Subdivision.

The installation work is scheduled to begin on Monday, January 10, 2022 and end on January 31, 2022, weather permitting. Area residents should expect construction noise and slower traffic conditions during the scheduled construction period.

The speed bumps are temporary as the Department’s long-term intent is to turn over the operations and maintenance responsibility of Kapahu Street and the sewer lines in the Kalāwahine Subdivision to the City & County of Honolulu.
