HONOLULU – The Hawaii Department of Transportation (HDOT) announces that starting Monday, Jan. 25, Honolulu Police Department officers will monitor and direct traffic flow at the intersection of Kalaeloa Boulevard and Farrington Highway in Kapolei. When available, officers will continue be posted at the current 2-way stop to help with the afternoon traffic congestion that accumulates on northbound Kalaeloa Boulevard between Campbell Industrial Park and the H-1 Freeway.

“Governor Ige is looking for new ways to deliver immediate traffic relief and we hope that having a police presence will help,” said Ford Fuchigami, HDOT Director. “We are moving forward with a permanent traffic signal at the intersection, however that will require some additional time.”

The traffic control at this intersection is scheduled for Monday through Friday from 2:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. This effort is in response to work on the Kapolei Interchange Complex, Phase 2 project which is expected to be completed in mid-2018. The installation of a permanent traffic signal at the Kalaeloa Boulevard and Farrington Highway intersection is currently being programmed for design.

Motorists are encouraged to drive with caution through the intersection and surrounding roadways and to use GoAkamai to monitor live traffic conditions at www.goakamai.org.
