Public information meeting and noise variance consultation scheduled for Nimitz Highway and Ala Moana Boulevard resurfacing project

Posted on Jun 18, 2019 in Highways Posts, Main, News

HONOLULU – The Hawaii Department of Transportation (HDOT) will be conducting a Public Information Meeting regarding the proposed Nimitz Highway and Ala Moana Boulevard Resurfacing Project, from the Kalihi Stream Bridge to Atkinson Drive, Project No.: F.A.P. STP-0300(158) Community Noise Control, Variance Application No. V-1111 Docket No. 19-NR-VN-31. This meeting will include discussion regarding the Community Noise Variance Application. The meeting is intended to inform the public of construction work and solicit input on the Project’s proposed night and Sunday work on Nimitz Highway and Ala Moana Boulevard from the Kalihi Stream Bridge to Atkinson Drive. The scope of this Project consists of cold planing; roadway resurfacing; reconstructing weakened pavement areas; adjusting utility manhole frames and covers; replacing existing loop detectors; installing traffic counting stations and weigh-in-motion stations; and installation of pavement markings and striping.

Limiting construction to daytime hours would be highly disruptive to traffic and would result in prolonged traffic delays and subsequent disruption to business operations.  Performing the work during daytime hours would also significantly lengthen the time required to complete the project, consequently increasing construction costs and would cause undue hardship on the motoring public and surrounding area residents.

The Public Information Meeting and Noise Variance Consultation is scheduled for the following location and time:

Tuesday, June 25, 2019, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
Kukahi Street, Pier 19 Ferry Terminal
Nimitz Highway, Honolulu, Hawaii 96817

Pursuant to Chapter 342F-5, subsection (h), Hawaii Revised Statutes, HDOT seeks written comments from interested persons regarding the Community Noise Variance Application for this Project.  To comment on the project you can complete the form linked here.
