PEARL CITY, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Honolulu rail crews have connected two major sections of the concrete guideway over the H-1 Freeway near the H-1 / H-2 split.

The original sections of the guideway that are supported by the balanced cantilevers are now connected, but work continues to build out the guideway on each end towards the Waipahu route on Farrington Highway and along Kamehameha Highway in Pearl City. Rail officials say the work to finish the guideway across this stretch of the H-1 Freeway will continue into 2016.

For this week, rail officials say drivers can expect continued overnight lane closures of up to three lanes in both west and eastbound sides of the H-1 between the Waiawa Overpass and Kamehameha Highway Overpass between 8 p.m. and 4 a.m.  through Thursday.

Additionally, during this upcoming Father's Day weekend, expect closures in the westbound lanes in this vicinity on Saturday from 8 p.m. until Sunday at 10 a.m.
