HONOLULU – The Hawaii Department of Transportation (HDOT) provides an update on the eastbound H-1 Freeway restriping work as daytime closure lengths have been reduced to minimize impacts to the public. Roadwork is expected to be completed by Monday, Feb. 14, over the next six days, pending weather conditions. The closure schedule is as follows.

Three right lanes will be closed on the eastbound H-1 Freeway from the Kaonohi Street overpass to the Radford Pedestrian Bridge on Wednesday, Feb. 9, through Friday, Feb. 11, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Offramps will remain open and motorists are encouraged to take alternate routes as this closure may create heavier traffic.

Following the completion of work in the right lanes, two left lanes will be closed in smaller sections on the eastbound H-1 Freeway from the Kaamilo Street overpass to the Valkenburgh Street underpass on Saturday, Feb. 12, through Monday, Feb. 14. If construction is unable to finish work in the left lanes, work will be rescheduled to a later date.

The H-1 Freeway restriping project will replace the original white button markers with new 4” dashed stripes with audible profile bumps. These improvements will upgrade our roadways to the new striping standard, providing more visibility and safety for drivers. The remainder of the restriping project, which covers the length of the H-1 Freeway from the H-2 Freeway to Middle Street is scheduled for completion in April. Future work under this project will be done at night.

Daywork is necessary for the Aiea to Pearl Harbor section because it allows access to the road underneath the Zipperlane, there are conflicting projects doing nightwork in the area, and it addresses the immediate safety concerns of faded road markings.

HDOT thanks the public for their patience while we continue to maintain our state roadways. To view a list of weekly lane closures, please view the HDOT website at https://hidot.hawaii.gov/highways/roadwork/.
