KAPOLEI, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Starting Monday, part of Farrington Highway, from Kualakai Parkway in Kapolei to Old Fort Weaver Road near Waipahu, will be closed for about four months as crews for the Honolulu rail project build columns and work on relocating major utility lines.

The project's contractor Kiewit will keep the eastbound lane of Farrington Highway open between 5 a.m. and 6 p.m. on weekdays. Kiewit also plans to restore left turns from Farrington Highway onto Fort Weaver Road in the northbound direction beginning Oct. 1.

Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation officials said drivers traveling 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.

The closure on Farrington Highway should last until Oct. 3.
