West Oahu/Farrington HighwayTraffic Update | Week of March 9, 2014
The Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation (HART) and contractor Kiewit want drivers to be aware of weekly lane closures along Farrington Highway in Ewa and Waipahu 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:
Farrington Highway between Kualakai Parkway (North-South Road) and Old Fort Weaver Road is closed in both directionsthrough April (see map below) for utility relocation and column work for the elevated rail guideway. The 24/7 road closure allows work crews to safely relocate major utility lines along a narrow two-lane stretch of Farrington Highway, just west of the Kahi Mohala Behavioral Center. Drivers traveling between East Kapolei and the Ewa/Waipahu region will still be able to use either the H-1 Freeway on the north end of Kualakai Parkway, or Kapolei Parkway on the south end.
The contractor will conduct staggered lane closures of the eastbound and westbound lanes along Farrington Highway between the Kunia Road overpass and Old Fort Weaver Road Loop (see map below) from Sunday, March 9 to Saturday, March 15. Drivers heading in either direction may be diverted to a temporary lane during the work.
The outside lanes of Farrington Highway east of Waipahu High School (see map below) will be closed for street light relocation work on Monday, March 10 from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. On Tuesday, March 11, the inside lanes of Farrington Highway will be closed for similar work from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.
