West Oahu/Farrington Highway Traffic Update | Week of December 8, 2013
The Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation (HART) and contractor Kiewit want drivers to be aware of weekly lane closures along Farrington Highway in Waipahu and Ewa 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 themselves and the workers and equipment.
Farrington Highway in Ewa between Kualakai Parkway (North-South Road) and Old Fort Weaver Road is closed in both directions until April of next year for utility relocation and column work as part of the elevated rail guideway (see attached map).
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. Following the utility relocation work, project contractor Kiewit will conduct shaft and column work as part of the planned rail guideway near that section of highway.
Drivers traveling between East Kapolei and the Ewa/Waipahu region will still be able to access either side by using either the H-1 Freeway on the north end of Kualakai Parkway, or Kapolei Parkway on the south end. Motorists who routinely use Farrington Highway in Ewa should provide themselves extra time for their commute.
The eastbound lanes of Farrington Highway in Waipahu near Kahualii Street will be closed from Sunday, December 8 to Tuesday, December 10 between 7 p.m. and 6 a.m. for street light relocation work (see map below).
- Eastbound drivers during the work will be diverted to temporary lanes on Farrington Highway.
The inside lanes of Farrington Highway in Waipahu near Kahualii Street will be closed from Tuesday, December 10 to Thursday, December 12 from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. for street light relocation work.
