TRAFFIC ADVISORY: LANE CLOSURES FOR HONOLULU RAIL TRANSIT PROJECT

 

The Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation (HART) would like to inform drivers about lane closures next week related to design and construction work for the Honolulu rail transit project. Motorists are advised that work along the 20-mile rail route from East Kapolei to Ala Moana Center will require lane closures during non-peak traffic hours.

For the safety of both the work crews and motorists, the public is advised to proceed with caution through these areas. Drivers should anticipate possible traffic delays or use alternate routes during work hours, and provide a safe distance between their vehicles and workers and equipment.

During the initial part of the four-month closure, contractor Kiewit will keep the eastbound lane of Farrington Highway open between 5 a.m. and 6 p.m. on weekdays. The contractor also plans to restore left turns from Farrington Highway onto FortWeaver Road heading northbound beginningWednesday, October 1 to assist motorists with the morning drive.

The road closure will allow work crews to safely relocate major utility lines and build columns along a narrow two-lane stretch of Farrington Highway, just west of the Kahi Mohala Behavioral Center.

Drivers travelling between East Kapolei and the Ewa/Waipahu region will still be able to access either side by using the H-1 Freeway on the north end of Kualakai Parkway, or Kapolei Parkway/Geiger Road on the south end.
