EWA, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Honolulu rail transit officials are reminding drivers about overnight road closures this week on Fort Weaver Road for rail guideway construction along Farrington Highway.

Because crews are building the guideway over the Fort Weaver Road/Kunia Road overpass, they are shutting down northbound lanes weeknights from 8 p.m. to 3 a.m., and southbound lanes from 9 p.m. to 4 a.m.

Drivers headed towards town (northbound) will be detoured off the Waipahu exit to Leoku Street and Waipahu Street then back to Fort Weaver Road. Those headed southbound will detour off to Old Farrington Highway then back to Fort Weaver Road near the Queen's Medical Center West.

Officials say the work is expected to run through July 10; however, there will be no closures this Friday, July 3, due to the July 4th holiday.
