HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The State Dept. of Transportation is providing a little holiday cheer to drivers on Oahu.
Effective immediately, drivers can take advantage of extended hours for the H-1 Freeway shoulder lane in the eastbound direction between the Mililani/Wahiawa off-ramp (Exit 8B) and the Pearlridge/Waimalu off-ramp (Exit 10).
The DOT says motorists may use the rightmost shoulder lane from 5 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily, seven days a week to alleviate holiday-related traffic.
The extended hours will continue through Wednesday, Dec. 26.
Officials advise motorists to use caution while familiarizing themselves with the modified traffic pattern.
