Road work set to begin in Nānākuli area
Leeward O’ahu – Road work on various residential and collector streets in the Nānākuli area is scheduled to begin Monday, July 11, 2016 (please see maps, below).
The road work will cover 42 miles of roadway, and is estimated to be finished within a year. The project includes, but is not limited to reconstruction and resurfacing of asphalt concrete pavements, removing asphalt overlay in existing gutters and reconstruction of designated concrete curbs and gutters, adjustment of utility manhole frames and covers to grade, and installation of pavement markings.
Also included in the project is the removal of identified trees that are diseased or have damaged sidewalks and curbs, and the trimming of canopies and pruning of roots as required by a qualified/certified arborist. The allowable work hours will be from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday (with possible weekend work). Residents and business owners are advised to observe and obey all traffic controls, posted signs, and special duty police officers. Drivers should anticipate delays due to detours, lane and road closures, and should allow extra travel time while driving through the work areas. Local residential traffic, deliveries and trash collection will be allowed during construction, but any illegally parked cars may be towed at the owner’s expense.
Contractor Grace Pacific LLC was awarded the $10.4 million contract. For questions regarding the project’s traffic management, contact Construction Management and Engineering LLC at 829-1902. To view an updated list of city road paving projects, please visit http://bit.ly/1UlEr9M.
In January 2013, Mayor Kirk Caldwell launched a comprehensive five-year program to repave 1,500 lane miles of city roads that were in substandard condition at the time. Since the inception of the program three-and-a-half years ago, the city has repaved more than 1,136 miles, ahead of the pace to meet the mayor’s goal.
