Posted on Jan 31, 2018 in Main, News

KAHULUI – The Hawaii Department of Transportation (HDOT) provides the following updates on the Lahaina Bypass Phase 1B-2, the Honoapiilani Highway Improvements – Keawe Street to Kapunakea Street, and the associated project, Traffic Signal Modernization at Various Locations.

Honoapiilani Highway Improvements – Keawe Street to Kapunakea Street

Work hours on this project to account for the anticipated volume of cars entering and exiting the Bypass from the interim northern terminus at Keawe Street continues to run from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday to Friday.

Field observations from multiple points in the day on Friday, Jan. 26, 2018, indicate that there is a slight delay in the construction zone, but no significant backups were observed on Honoapiilani Highway or Keawe Street. As mentioned in last week’s update, work hours may be adjusted if heavy traffic is observed.

Last week the installation of conduit at the Lahaina Cannery Mall entrance, which included the trenching and backfill work, was completed. Work on the conduit on the south side of the Honoapiilani Highway and Keawe Street intersection began on Jan. 25, 2018, and continues this week.
