Updated On: Jul 01 2013 10:28:22 AM HST
The Freeway Service Patrol is expanding its coverage starting Monday.
The service will be adding three more miles along the H-1 Freeway. Coverage will now span from Fort Weaver Road to Ainakoa Avenue in Waialae.
Patrol trucks will also be equipped with a new tool called "Push Bumpers." It will be used to nudge a stalled vehicle to safety without damaging the vehicle.
The program has provided more than 36,000 traffic assists since its launch in 2009.
The phone number for the Freeway Service Patrol is 841-HELP (4357).
