Road Projects Popping Up Everywhere

(KHNL) - Crews working on roads will be a common sight around Oahu.

At 9 p.m., the state Department of Transportation will completely shut down the Honolulu-bound lanes along Nimitz Highway near the Kalihi Stream Bridge.

That work is expected to continue each night through Friday.

Waipahu drivers found the going slow on Farrington Highway. Work to improve shoulder lanes and drainage forced westbound lane closures on the area's main thoroughfare. A major repaving project on Farrington is scheduled to begin later this month.

Work in the area of Aiea Access Road will affect Kamehameha Highway. Nearby lanes on Moanalua Freeway may also shut down during daylight hours. Shoulder lane closures may also slow traffic headed for the east-bound freeway on-ramp on Kamehameha highway.

On-going construction continues to slow traffic on Puuloa road. It may get worse while crews work on utility lines. Lanes at this busy border of Salt Lake and Mapunapuna may shut down during daylight hours for the rest of the work week.

Pavement marking and striping could shut down lanes along Pali Highway in the Honolulu-bound direction between Castle Medical Center and School Street.

Kamehameha Highway will be down to one lane between Waiahole Valley Road and Crouching Lion Inn due to repaving. Traffic will be contra-flowed in the area.
