PEARL HARBOR (HawaiiNewsNow) - Construction on the Honolulu rail project is moving through the Pearl Harbor area, which means road closures will be in place.

The Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation said construction on Kamehameha Highway fronting the World War II Valor in the Pacific National Monument is set to begin mid-April.

Entering the National Park Service site, which is home to the USS Arizona Memorial, will not be affected, but vehicles exiting the site will not be able to turn left onto Kamehameha Highway in the westbound direction.

All vehicles will have to turn right to access the highway going eastbound.

Those who need to access the highway in the westbound direction will be detoured to Radford Drive and Center Drive.

The closure will last several months for construction on the airport guideway and station.

Shuttle service from the World War II Valor in the Pacific National Monument site to the Battleship Missouri Memorial and Pacific Aviation Museum on Ford Island will not be affected.
