Lane Pattern Modifications At H-1 Fwy. Westbound Waipahu Exit & Farrington Hwy. Begin Saturday

Posted on Jun 12, 2015 in Highways News, Main, News

HONOLULU – The Hawaii Department of Transportation (HDOT) advises Oahu motorists that lane patterns will be modified on the H-1 Freeway westbound Waipahu Off-Ramp (Exit 8B) and on Farrington Highway near the Waiawa Road intersection beginning this Saturday.  One left lane on Farrington Highway will be closed between Waiawa Road and the Kamehameha Highway Overpass on Saturday, June 13, from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. for lane restriping.

The Farrington Highway lanes will be restriped to allow greater usage by vehicles using the H-1 Waipahu Exit ramp.  Two westbound lanes on Farrington Highway will be restriped to merge into the rightmost lane near the Waiawa Road intersection.  Farrington Highway lanes will also be restriped at the end of the H-1 Waipahu Exit ramp to allow exiting vehicles access to both the left and center lanes to allow for greater traffic flow and capacity.  Highway signage will be posted to notify motorists of the modified lanes ahead.

Motorists are advised to drive with caution while getting familiar with the new lane patterns and to plan ahead, adjust travel times and expect delays during the restriping work.  Motorists can use the GoAkamai website and mobile apps to see current traffic conditions and access images from over 200 traffic cameras on Oahu.

For more information, call the project hotline at 945-1144.  Follow HDOT on social media, and visit the Pearl City Viaduct Deck Widening and Repair project website for traffic and roadwork updates.
