HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -
Mayor Kirk Caldwell announced on Thursday that road repairs in Nuuanu, Pauoa and Pacific Heights will start taking place on July 6.
Work is scheduled from Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Residents and businesses will be notified if a road in their area is scheduled for repair.
This 37-mile, $1.3 million project is scheduled to be completed by the end of the year. Roads will be fixed with Slurry seal, helping to extend its life. The overall project will also include crack sealing, curb and gutter repair, reconstruction of damaged areas, tree mitigation, adjustment of utilities to finish grade and installation of permanent pavement markings and vehicle loop sensors.
Roads receiving this treatment are listed below.
On-street parking will be prohibited during times of repair. "No Parking Tow Away" signs will be posted at least 48 hours in advance. Illegally parked vehicles will be towed at the owner's expense. Drivers are reminded to observe and obey all traffic controls, posted signs and special duty officers. They are also advised to consider alternate routes when possible to avoid delays.
The project is a part of the mayor's efforts to repave 1,500 miles of substandard city roads in five years. More than 800 miles have been repaved since January 2013.
For questions or concerns, call the contractor of the project, Alaokona Corp. at 833-1991 or construction manager SSFM at 356-1235.
