The release below has been corrected to reflect paving work to address inspection findings and the end time of 3 p.m. The earlier release had the end time for the single lane weekday closures as 11:30 a.m.

HONOLULU – The Hawaiʻi Department of Transportation (HDOT) has substantially completed paving work for the Kalanianaʻole Highway Resurfacing Project, from Pōʻalima Street to Makai Pier. Some paving work will need to be done near Pōʻalima Street to address findings in the final inspection. Remaining work for the project includes the installation of guardrails by Makai Pier and Inoaʻole Stream, installation of loop sensors near Waimānalo Elementary School, road striping, signage, delineators, and catch basin filters.

A single lane closure will continue as noted on our website on Kalanianaʻole Highway in one direction at a time, at locations between Pōʻalima Street to Makai Pier, on weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. The estimated completion date for this project is in the Spring of 2024.

HDOT thanks the public for its cooperation during the project to improve the safety of this main thoroughfare for eastside commuters. Motorists are reminded to drive with caution and allow for extra travel time to get to their destinations. Special duty police officers will be on-site assisting with safety procedures.
