Posted on February 9, 2022 in Highway News, Main, News
HONOLULU – The Hawaii Department of Transportation (HDOT) provides an update on the eastbound H-1 Freeway restriction work as daytime closure times have been reduced to minimize impacts on the public. Road works are expected to be completed by Monday, February 14, within the next six days, depending on weather conditions. The closing schedule is as follows.
Three right-hand lanes will be closed on the eastbound H-1 Freeway from the Kaonohi Street Overpass to the Radford Pedestrian Bridge, Wednesday, Feb. 9 through Friday, Feb. 11, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Exit ramps will remain open and motorists are encouraged to take alternate routes as this closure may create heavier traffic.
After 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, from Saturday February 12 to Monday February 14. If construction is unable to complete work in the left lanes, work will be rescheduled to a later date.
The H-1 Freeway re-striping project will replace the stock white button markers with new 4-inch dotted stripes with audible profile bumps. These improvements will bring our roads up to standard with the new standard, providing more visibility and safety for drivers. The rest of the restriping project, which covers the length of the H-1 freeway from the H-2 freeway to Middle Street, is expected to be completed in April. Future work on this project will be carried out at night.
Daytime work is required for the Aiea section at Pearl Harbor as it provides access to the road below the Zipperlane, conflicting projects perform nighttime work in the area and address immediate safety concerns with the markings discolored roads.
HDOT thanks the public for their patience as we continue to maintain our state roads. To view a list of weekly lane closures, please visit the HDOT website at https://hidot.hawaii.gov/highways/roadwork/.
