West Oahu/Farrington Highway Traffic Update | Week of February 22, 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 end of March
Kualakai Parkway (North-South Road) to Old Fort Weaver Road
The scheduled full closure of Farrington Highway this weekend between Kualakai Parkway (North-South Road) and Old Fort Weaver Road Loop for guideway construction has been postponed. Information on new lane closure dates and times will be made available when the latest schedule is finalized.
That section of freeway is currently open in the eastbound direction of Farrington Highway from 5 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. weekdays. The contractor will reclose that section of highway each weeknight from 7:30 p.m. to 5 a.m. for rail guideway construction through the end of March 2015.
