HDOT NEWS RELEASE: Revised weekend roadwork schedule for the Kamehameha Highway resurfacing project on Oahu’s North ShorePosted on Feb 1, 2017 in Latest Department News
HONOLULU – The Hawaii Department of Transportation (HDOT) notifies Oahu motorists that the weekend schedule for Saturday, Feb. 4, 2017, through Sunday, Feb. 5, 2017 will be revised to minimize impacts surrounding Super Bowl Sunday. Revisions are as follows:
From 6 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 4, 2017, through 9 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 5, 2017 (closure duration 39 hours)
REVISED: From 6 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 3, 2017, through 2 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 4, 2017. Then Saturday, Feb. 4, 2017, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. (Closure duration 18 hours)
- Westbound lane will be closed at the Kuilima Drive intersection.
REVISED: From 6 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 3, 2017, through 8 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 4, 2017. (Closure duration 26 hours)
- Westbound lane will be closed at Waialee Bridge, between Pahipahialua Street and Kaunala Street.
Construction crews will be excavating and installing concrete slabs to maintain the structural longevity of the bridges in the area. During closure hours traffic will be contraflowed by using the remaining open lane.
Conducting the repairs over a continuous period on the weekend, instead of splitting it up on weekdays, will save a week of additional lane closures. The weekend work is estimated to save a week from the project schedule.
Electronic message boards have been posted to inform motorists of the closures. Emergency vehicles have been notified and will be allowed through the work zone.
HDOT thanks the community for its patience and advises motorists to allow extra travel time to get to their destinations. Roadwork is weather permitting.
