DOT News Release: Public Informational Meeting for upcoming project on the westbound H-201 Moanalua Freeway between Fort Shafter and the H-3 Underpass

Posted on Nov 14, 2019 in Latest News

Meeting is to seek public comment on proposed night and Sunday work for the project.

HONOLULU – The Hawaii Department of Transportation (HDOT) will be conducting a Public Informational Meeting (PIM) regarding the proposed Interstate Route H-201 Outbound Auxiliary Lane Project. This meeting will include discussion on a Community Noise Variance Application for the project to allow night work.

The PIM and Noise Variance Consultation is scheduled for:

Wednesday, November 20, 2019, from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Moanalua Middle School

1289 Mahiole Street, Honolulu, Hawaii 96819

The proposed project location is on the westbound H-201 Moanalua Freeway from the Fort Shafter Offramp to the vicinity of the H-3 Freeway Underpass. The project as proposed will continue the existing left auxiliary lane on the H-201 from Fort Shafter to the Aiea/Pearlridge Offramp to provide an additional lane through the area. The scope of the project includes: installation of striping, pavement markings, signage and traffic counting stations; cold planing, resurfacing, and reconstructing spot areas; cleaning existing drains; removing grass and silt buildup adjacent to the roadway; and, trimming hedges along the freeway median. The hedges in the freeway median may alternatively be removed and replaced with a temporary glare screen.

Limiting construction to daytime hours would result in prolonged traffic delays and disruption to business operations in the area. Performing the work during daytime hours would also significantly lengthen the time required to complete the project, increasing construction costs, and causing undue hardship on the motoring public and surrounding area residents.

Pursuant to Hawaii Revised Statutes, Chapter 342F-5, subsection (h), HDOT seeks written comments from interested person regarding the Community Noise Variance Application for this Project. To comment on the project you can complete the form linked here.

The meeting is accessible for individuals with disabilities.
