HONOLULU – The Hawaii Department of Transportation (HDOT) alerts the public that two northbound lanes will be closed on Liliha Street between North King Street and Vineyard Boulevard beginning at 8:30 a.m. on Friday, May 20, 2016 through 6 p.m. on Sunday, May 22, 2016 as part of the Liliha Street Rehabilitation project.

Special duty police officers will be on site to assist with traffic flow. Electronic message boards will be placed in the area in advance of the weekend closure to alert drivers of the work.

During the closure, traffic will be contraflowed in the southbound lanes, providing motorists one travel lane in either direction through the project area. Left turns from Liliha Street to Vineyard Boulevard and North King Street will be restricted during this time. While one lane will remain open for drivers in both directions on Liliha Street, motorists can also use Aala Street or Palama Street as possible alternate routes. Construction crews will perform roadway reconstruction work that requires a continuous closure.

In addition to the weekend work, the Liliha Street Rehabilitation project will have a single northbound lane closure between Vineyard Boulevard and School Street on Monday, May 16, 2016 through Thursday, May 19, 2016 from 8:30 a.m. through 3 p.m., daily, for sidewalk and pedestrian railing installations. All left turns will remain open. Roadwork is weather permitting.

Motorists are advised to plan ahead and drive with caution through the work zone. Lane closure information will be available on the HDOT website at https://hidot.hawaii.gov/highways/roadwork/. Updates are also released through our social media channels on Facebook and Twitter.
