Can you experiment with ways to clear the Punahou area bottleneck?

From "ch":

Do another trial run of closing off an on ramp east and westbound near Punahou bottleneck morning and evening (example maybe close Pensacola on ramp eastbound)

Response from the State:

We are constantly considering how we get people off the main line. There have been studies in the past showing closure of the Ward or Piikoi eastbound on ramps would help congestion in the Punahou area, but we need to coordinate this, and any other proposed action, with the City and County of Honolulu to ensure any actions we take regarding on/off ramps do not detrimentally effect their system.
