WAIKIKI (HawaiiNewsNow) - Sidewalk renovations will begin Tuesday along Kalakaua Avenue, which could mean more traffic headaches in Waikiki.

Construction crews will be working on sidewalks from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Monday to Friday.

The project is slated to be completed in January of 2019.

The project will start at the area near the Outrigger Waikiki Beach Resort, and end at the area near the Aston Wakiki Beach Hotel.

The project will include the modification and addition of landscape strips, improving drainage, upgrading curb ramps, and repairing existing sidewalks, among other improvements. On-street parking will be prohibited during working hours, and drivers should anticipate delays due to detours, as well as lane closures.

Illegally parked vehicles in these areas may be towed at the owner's expense if necessary.
