The Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation (HART) wants to inform drivers that Farrington Highway between Kualakai Parkway (North-South Road) and Old Fort Weaver Road Loop will be closed in both directions beginning Saturday, November 1 through the end of January 2015 as part of rail construction.
The road closure will allow work crews to safely relocate utility lines and perform shaft/column work along a narrow two-lane stretch of Farrington Highway, just west of the Kahi Mohala Behavioral Center.
Currently, the eastbound direction along that stretch of Farrington Highway is open weekdays between 5 a.m. and 6 p.m. until October 31.
Motorists who routinely use Farrington Highway should provide themselves extra time for their commute. 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 map below).
Roadside electronic message boards will be posted beginning this week to notify drivers about the upcoming full road closure.
Motorists during the road closure will still be able to access the Kahi Mohala facility in Ewa from Fort Weaver Road. Contractor Kiewit is coordinating with Aloun Farms to ensure employees and vendors can still access the area.
Those attending Aloun Farms’ pumpkin patch events this weekend (October 25 and 26) will still be able to access Farrington Highway from Kualakai Parkway.
