Motorists are encouraged to use caution in the new lane as HDOT completes striping and signage work.

HONOLULU – The Hawaii Department of Transportation (HDOT) advises Oahu motorists of the opening of the third lane on the H-201 Moanalua Freeway On-Ramp to the H-1 westbound Freeway. This lane was added as part of the H-1 and H-201 Resurfacing, Halawa Interchange to Aiea Heights Drive Overpass.

“As we finished the paving we wanted to allow drivers headed to the westside access to the additional lane,” said HDOT Director Jade Butay. “Work will continue on this project but we hope that the improvements will improve the daily lives of those commuting on our busiest stretch of roadway.”

Night lane closures in the area continue to refine the striping and signage for the final traffic pattern. The closures associated with this project are:


Two lanes closed on the H-201 Moanalua Freeway/H-1 Freeway in the westbound direction between the Ala Kapuna Street overpass and the Aiea Heights Drive overpass on Sunday night, April 29, through Friday morning, May 4, from 9 p.m. to 3:30 a.m., for pavement striping and installation of vehicle detector loops.

Striping for the final lane configurations, which will appear as shown in the conceptual drawing, is expected to be complete next week, weather permitting. Motorists are asked to use caution in the area until the permanent striping and loop detector work is completed and the public has had time to get used to the new lane.
