Lanes on Farrington Highway in Ewa closed until April

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

A portion of Farrington Highway in Ewa Beach between Kualakai Parkway and Old Ft. Weaver Road will be completely closed in both directions until April for roadwork related to the construction of Honolulu's rail transit system.

HART officials say the closure, which began at 10 p.m. on Monday, is primarily for utility relocation and column work. Crews will first relocate major utility lines near the Kahi Mohala Behavioral Center, and then contractors will begin shaft and column work for the rail's elevated guideway.

Motorists who routinely use Farrington Highway should provide themselves extra time for their commute.

The following is a portion of the release from HART:

The Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation (HART) wants to inform drivers of lane closures next week related to design and construction work for the Honolulu rail transit project.

Motorists are advised of work along the 20-mile rail route from East Kapolei to Ala Moana Center that will require lane closures during non-peak traffic hours. 

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.

Drivers travelling 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.
