PEARL CITY, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Work will kick off on a major rail addition near the Sears distribution center as early as Sunday.
Construction of a second balanced cantilever over the H-1 Freeway in Pearl City will spur town-bound lane closures on the H-1 Freeway.
Crews will work from 6:30 p.m. to 3:30 a.m., Sunday through Thursday.
Dan Grabauskas, executive director and CEO of the Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation, said the overhead work will take about two months.
It will be similar to the balanced cantilever built over the H-1/H-2 merge near Leeward Community College last year.
While there aren't expected to be any freeway shutdowns for the project, crews might be closing all but one lane.
But, officials said, drivers could face the greatest danger when all the lanes are open.
That's because the far right lane will have a temporary height limit of 14 feet, 2 inches. The semi-trailer height limit in Hawaii is 14 feet, which means there won't be much clearance for large trucks.
