Hanakahi Street ‘speed hump’ project scheduled to start Friday
Ewa Beach – Starting Friday, November 3, a city contractor will begin installing four “speed humps” on Hanakahi Street in Ewa Beach located at the following nearby addresses (see map below):
· 91-1139 Hanakahi Street
· 91-1115 Hanakahi Street
· 91-1037 Hanakahi Street
· 91-957 Hanakahi Street
Work hours will be from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Mondays through Fridays. Motorists are reminded to be on the lookout for the speed hump signs and markings on the pavement.
Drivers should anticipate delays and are reminded to observe and obey all traffic controls, posted signs and special duty police officers. On-street parking will be prohibited during working hours, so motorists should observe the dates and times on posted roadway signs. Illegally parked vehicles may be towed, if necessary, at the owner’s expense. Drivers are advised to proceed with caution through construction areas or take an alternate route. Local residential traffic, deliveries, and trash collection will be allowed during construction hours.
Grace Pacific, LLC is coordinating local traffic. Please call Grace Pacific, LLC at (808) 842-3231 or AECOM at (808) 366-2588 with any concerns.
The speed humps are three inches to four inches high and 12-feet to 14-feet wide. They should not be confused with speed bumps, which are generally thee inches to six inches high and one-foot to three-feet wide. Properly spaced speed humps keep traffic flowing close to the posted speed limit, and typically vehicles slow to approximately 20 mph when traversing speed humps, as opposed to five mph when traversing speed bumps.
The speed humps are being installed after the Ewa Neighborhood Board passed a resolution in support of the project due to safety concerns with students who walk to and from Ka‘imiloa Elementary School and are forced to cross Hanakahi Street.
