The Hawaii Department of Transportation is warning motorists of full nighttime H-1 Freeway closures in both directions from the Likelike Highway to the vicinity of Ward Avenue starting Thursday, June 12, at 8 p.m.
The closures will take place Sunday nights through Friday mornings from June 12 through June 26, from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m., nightly.
The work will include paving, curing, striping, and loop detector installation. Full closures will help expedite the project as its July completion date gets closer.
All closures are weather dependent; the project schedule will shift due to inclement weather. For more information and updates, including alternate routes, visit www.H1rehab.com, or the HDOT’s weekly lane closures at http://hidot.hawaii.gov/highways/roadwork/ and follow HDOT on social media #WZAM.
The H-1 Rehab project includes, pavement reconstruction, paving, upgraded lighting, median glare screens, drainage improvements, widening at the Nuuanu Stream Bridge and Palama Separation, and restriping of the freeway to provide four through lanes of traffic in both directions to address traffic congestion.
The HDOT urges motorists to be prepared, plan ahead and take alternate routes.
