HONOLULU – The Hawaii Department of Transportation (HDOT) advises Oahu motorists of lane closures on the westbound H-1 Freeway beginning Tuesday night, Jan. 16, 2018 through Friday morning, Jan. 19, 2018 for paving and overhead sign work.

The westbound Ulune Street onramp to the H-1 Freeway and a right lane on the H-1 Freeway from the onramp to the Aiea Heights Drive overpass will be closed between the hours of 9 p.m. to 4 a.m., nightly.

This closure is for the H-201/H-1 Additional Westbound Lane from the Halawa Interchange to Aiea Pedestrian Overpass which adds a third lane to the H-1 Freeway westbound. Conceptual drawings showing the additional lane are available here.
