HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Some 24-hour road closures have been scheduled so Honolulu rail project crews can safely work in those areas.
Work along Farrington Highway near Waipahu High School is already in progress. Kiewit crews have closed one lane of Farrington Highway in each direction at the Kahualii Street intersection where crews started installing the barriers Thursday evening.
Special duty police officers will be controlling traffic at the intersection at peak hours of traffic: from 6 to 9 a.m. and 3:30 to 7 p.m. The road will be closed for three weeks.
A 24-hour lane closure on Kamehameha Highway will also start Monday, Feb. 2 until mid-2015 so crews can safely conduct shaft and column work along the highway median for the planned rail guideway. The following closures will be in effect:
- One eastbound left-turn lane from Kamehameha Highway onto Acacia Road fronting Pearl Highlands Center will be closed. For safety reasons, U-turns will be restricted in the eastbound direction of Kamehameha Highway at the Acacia Road intersection during the lane closure.
- One westbound left-turn lane and the inside westbound lane of Kamehameha Highway near the Acacia Road intersection will also be closed 24 hours a day as part of the shaft and column work.
