The state Department of Transportation advises Oahu motorists of modified traffic patterns on the H-1 Freeway during nighttime construction hours between Likelike Highway and Ward Avenue, beginning at 8 p.m. on Sunday night, Jan. 26, and continuing nightly as part of the H-1 Freeway Rehabilitation Project.
For the safety of all drivers and workers in the construction zone, the DOT asks motorists to slow down and beware of the new S-pattern coning configuration.
Two H-1 lanes are closed in each direction through this area on Sunday nights through Friday mornings, from 8 p.m. to 4:30 a.m., nightly, leaving one eastbound and one westbound lane open for use.
Beginning on Sunday night, construction work will be taking place in the median and on the right shoulders in varying segments. The remaining open traffic lanes will be shifted using traffic cones into a snaking pattern around these work areas.
As the shifted lane patterns will be modified over time as the work areas change, motorists are strongly advised to slow down, heed all traffic warning devices and drive with caution through the shifted lanes.
Following the nightly lane closures, the cones will be removed by 4:30 a.m. daily and traffic patterns will return to normal. These nightly lane shifts will continue as necessary for several months.
