Public Assistance Requested To Stop H-3 Freeway Copper TheftsPosted on May 1, 2012 in News
The copper wiring in several conduits was cut but not taken. Police reports have been filed and repairs to the wiring are pending. Motorists who observe possible copper wiring thefts or suspicious activity are asked to call 911 and report the location to police immediately.
H-3 Freeway copper wiring and communications cables were cut in junction boxes and underground conduits sometime in late April near the Halawa Interchange.
Damage to the copper wiring and fiber optic communications has rendered all emergency callboxes and six traffic monitoring cameras on the Halawa-side of the tunnels inoperative. Control over electronic messageboards displaying tunnel lane closure information was also damaged on the Halawa-side.
