West Oahu/Farrington Highway Traffic Update | Week of October 19, 2014

 
The Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation (HART) and contractor Kiewit want drivers to be aware of weekly lane closures in the Ewa and Waipahu areas as related to the Honolulu rail transit project.

For the safety of both the work crews and motorists, the public is advised to proceed with caution through these areas. Drivers should anticipate possible traffic delays or use alternate routes during work hours, and provide a safe distance between their vehicles and workers and equipment:

All scheduled weekly lane closures are subject to change and may be postponed because of the approaching storm. HART will provide updates on any schedule changes or cancellations:

 

Monday, October 20 to Friday, October 24
Kualakai Parkway (North-South Road) to Old Fort Weaver Road

Farrington Highway from Kualakai Parkway (North-South Road) in Kapolei to Old Fort Weaver Road near Waipahu (see map below) is closed for four months until the end of January 2015.

During the initial part of the four-month closure, contractor Kiewit will keep the eastbound lane of Farrington Highway open weekdays between 5 a.m. and 6 p.m.

Those attending Aloun Farms' weekend pumpkin patch events through October will be able to enter Farrington Highway from Kualakai Parkway.

The contractor has also restored left turns from Farrington Highway on to Kunia Road heading northbound to assist motorists with the morning drive.

The road closure will allow work crews to safely relocate major utility lines and build columns along a narrow two‐lane stretch of Farrington Highway, just west of the Kahi Mohala Behavioral Center.

Drivers travelling between East Kapolei and the Ewa/Waipahu region will still be able to access either side by using the H‐1 Freeway on the north end of Kualakai Parkway, or Kapolei Parkway/Geiger Roadon the south end.
