West Oahu/Farrington Highway Traffic Update | Week of September 28, 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:

Monday, September 29 to Friday, October 3
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 (see map below) near Waipahu will be closed for approximately four months beginning Monday, September 29.

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

The contractor also plans to restore left turns from Farrington Highway onto Fort Weaver Road heading northbound beginning Wednesday, October 1 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 Road on the south end.
