West Oahu/Farrington Highway Traffic Update | Week of January 25, 2015
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:
Seven days a week until January 2015
Kualakai Parkway (North-South Road) to Old Fort Weaver Road
Farrington Highway between Kualakai Parkway (North-South Road) and Old Fort Weaver Road Loop is closed in both directions until Thursday, January 29. Starting Thursday for approximately two months, only the eastbound direction of Farrington Highway will be open to the public between the hours of 5 a.m. and 7:30 p.m. The contractor will reclose that section of highway each night from 7:30 p.m. to 5 a.m. for continual guideway construction.
