Posted on Apr 6, 2018 in Main, News

HONOLULU – The Hawaii Department of Transportation (HDOT) advises Oahu motorists that the H-1 Freeway will be closed in the westbound direction between the Makakilo Drive overpass and the Campbell Industrial Park/Barbers Point Harbor offramp (Exit 1) on Tuesday night, April 10, 2018, through Friday morning, April 13, 2018, from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m., nightly, for the Kapolei Interchange Complex, Phase 2 project.

A full closure of the westbound H-1 Freeway is necessary to set the bridge girders and temporary bracing over the westbound lanes. During closure hours, the Makakilo Drive onramp to the westbound H-1 Freeway and the Farrington Highway offramp (Exit 1E) will be closed. Motorists traveling on the H-1 Freeway will be directed to the Makakilo/Kapolei/Kalaeloa offramp (Exit 2) and may continue westbound on Farrington Highway/Kamokila Boulevard. See below for a map of the detour route.
