HONOLULU – The Hawaii Department of Transportation (HDOT) Highways Division reminds motorists of the ongoing Kamehameha Highway Resurfacing Project, a major New Day Work Project that, once complete, will provide a safe and smooth driving route for Central Oahu motorists. This project will repair 13.7 lane miles of roadway on Kamehameha Highway from the vicinity of Ka Uka Boulevard to the vicinity of Waihau Street. Roadwork will primarily be comprised of day work, and this week’s will take place as follows:
Single lane closure on Kamehameha Highway in the northbound direction from Ka Uka Boulevard to the vicinity of Waihau Street on Monday, August 11 through Thursday, August 14, from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., daily, for curb and gutter installations. Motorists are advised to expect traffic delays and use alternate roadways such as Meheula Parkway, Ka Uka Boulevard and the H-2 Freeway.
The existing roadway was last resurfaced in 1991, but has been maintained through a consistent maintenance program throughout the past 23 years. In addition to resurfacing and reconstruction, the project will include guardrail safety improvements, traffic signal safety modifications, pedestrian safety improvements, utility modifications, landscaping and new signage.
Please be aware of changing traffic conditions and observe reduced speed limits within project construction areas.
Lane closure information will be distributed to the media, will be available on the HDOT website at hidot.hawaii.gov, and will be released through our social media channels on Facebook and Twitter. Please follow us for the latest information, #hitraffic, #WZAM
