H-1 Freeway Airport Viaduct Lane Closure Update for the Weekend of May 2

Posted on Apr 30, 2014 in Highways News, Main, News

HONOLULU – The Hawaii Department of Transportation (HDOT) is advising motorists of eastbound weekend lane closures on the H1 Freeway Airport Viaduct beginning Friday night, May 2, at 9 p.m., and continuing until 7 a.m., Sunday morning, May 4. Drivers should note that traffic patterns will be changing as work progresses and speeds are reduced to 35 mph in the freeway construction zone and to 15 mph while crews are doing concrete pours. Please slow down for your safety and the safety of the workers. The fine for speeding in the construction zone is $307.

The work schedule is eastbound only and as follows:

There will be multiple left lanes closed on the H1 Freeway Airport Viaduct between Hickam AFB/Naval Base Off-Ramp (Exit 15) and Middle Street/Dillingham Boulevard Off-Ramp (Exit 18B), from 9 p.m., Friday night, May 2, through 7 a.m., Sunday morning, May 4, for hydro-demolition and concrete pouring. The speed limit will be reduced to 15 mph from 4 p.m., Saturday, May 3, through 7 a.m., Sunday morning, May 4, so the concrete can cure properly.

Two left lanes directly below on Nimitz Highway will be closed between Valkenburgh Street and Catlin Drive on Saturday, May 3, from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m., for hydro-demolition work.

The $15.6 million H1 Freeway Airport Viaduct project will repair approximately 94,000 square feet of concrete deck and replace expansion joints and freeway striping. This project is federally funded and is scheduled to be completed in the summer of 2015. All Airport ramps will remain open during construction.
