HONOLULU – The Hawaii Department of Transportation (HDOT) advises the travelling public that the H-3 Freeway between the Likelike Highway Onramp and the Halawa Interchange will be closed in the Halawa/Honolulu bound direction beginning from 7 p.m. Friday, April 3 to 4 a.m. Monday, April 6.

During the 57-hour continuous closure, HDOT contractors will repair a damaged steel expansion joint before the Harano Tunnels. The continuous closure allows for sufficient staging time, removal of the temporary steel plates that were welded to the structure, and installation of the new expansion joint. HDOT is taking advantage of the low traffic volumes during the Statewide Stay at Home order for COVID-19 to complete this needed repair with minimal impact to the public.

Motorists with essential business that need to travel from Kaneohe to Halawa are asked to use alternate routes Likelike Highway or Pali Highway. Electronic message boards will be placed to provide advance notice to the public. All roadwork is weather depending.
