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 Sunday night, April 15, 2018, through Friday morning, April 20, 2018, from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m., nightly, for the Kapolei Interchange Complex, Phase 2 project.

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.

Construction crews will be installing the new bridge girders across the westbound lanes and relocating the electric utilities. When this work is finished, the contractor will complete the bridge superstructure and add the final concrete overlay and pavement for all bridges and ramp surfaces.
