Weekend roadwork scheduled for the Kamehameha Highway Resurfacing project on Oahu’s North ShorePosted on Jan 26, 2017 in Main, News
HONOLULU – The Hawaii Department of Transportation (HDOT) advises Oahu motorists of single lane closures on Kamehameha Highway on the North Shore over the next two weekends, for the Kamehameha Highway Resurfacing project. The roadwork schedule is as follows:
On Saturday, Jan. 28, 2017, from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. (closure duration 15 hours)
- Westbound lane will be closed at the Kuilima Drive intersection.
From 6 a.m. on Saturday, Jan. 28, 2017, through 9 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 29, 2017 (Closure duration 39 hours)
- Westbound lane will be closed at Waialee Bridge, between Kaunala Street and Pahipahialua Street.
From 6 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 4, 2017, through 9 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 5, 2017 (closure duration 39 hours)
- Eastbound lane will be closed at the Kuilima Drive intersection.
- Eastbound lane will be closed at Waialee Bridge, between Pahipahialua Street and Kaunala Street.
Construction crews will be excavating and installing concrete slabs to maintain the structural longevity of the bridges in the area. During closure hours traffic will be contraflowed by using the remaining open lane.
Conducting the repairs over a continuous period on the weekend, instead of splitting it up on weekdays, will save a week of additional lane closures. The two weekends of work are estimated to save two weeks from the project schedule.
Electronic message boards have been posted to inform motorists of the closures. Emergency vehicles have been notified and will be allowed through the work zone.
HDOT thanks the community for its patience and advises motorists to allow extra travel time to get to their destinations. Roadwork is weather permitting.
