Mayor Kirk Caldwell held a press conference at 11 a.m. today at Piliuka Place and Wai‘anae Valley Road to announce the beginning of a road repaving program on the Leeward Coast.

Mayor Caldwell was joined by Councilmember Kymberly Pine, who represents O‘ahu’s west side, Design and Construction Deputy Director Mark Yonamine, and a representative from contractor Road Builders Corporation.     

The repaving of more than 100 lane miles of Leeward Coast streets begins today in Wai‘anae Valley, with Nānākuli and Mā‘ili beginning later this summer. Future repaving projects are also in the planning phase for Mākaha and other Wai‘anae Valley Roads.

Working hours for repaving crews will be 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on weekdays. No work will be done on weekends.

Under Mayor Caldwell’s aggressive program that began in January 2013, more than 1,160 lane miles have been repaved, with the goal of repaving 1,500 substandard lane miles within five years. The city has jurisdiction of approximately 3,500 lane miles on O‘ahu.  

Road Builders Corporation can be reached at 833-5400.
