The Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation wants to inform drivers that Farrington Highway between Kualakai Parkway (North-South Road) and Old Fort Weaver Road Loop will partially reopen starting Thursday, January 29.
The eastbound direction of Farrington Highway will reopen at 5 a.m. Thursday and remain open each weekday from 5 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. to accommodate daytime commuters. The westbound direction will remain closed because of ongoing guideway construction.
The section of highway will then be closed weeknights in both directions from 7:30 p.m. to 5 a.m. to allow construction crews to safely conduct rail guideway work along the narrow two-lane stretch of road. The nightly closures are expected to last approximately two months, with the highway to be completely open to drivers once the guideway work is complete.
Motorists who routinely use Farrington Highway should provide themselves extra time for their commute. During the nightly closure, drivers travelling between East Kapolei and the Ewa/Waipahu region will still be able to access either side by using either the H-1 Freeway on the north end of Kualakai Parkway, or Kapolei Parkway/Geiger Road on the south end (see attached locator map).
