West Oahu/Farrington Highway Traffic Update | Week of April 13, 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:
Crews will not work along Farrington Highway in Waipahu on Friday, April 18 in observance of the Good Friday holiday.
Two left eastbound lanes of the H-1 Freeway at the Waiawa Interchange (H-1/H-2 merge near Leeward Community College) will be closed overnight Wednesday, April 16 and Thursday, April 17 between 9 p.m. and 4 a.m. the following morning for ongoing preparation work of rail construction in the area later this year.
Farrington Highway between Kualakai Parkway (North-South Road) and Old Fort Weaver Road (see map below) is closed in both directions through April 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.
