Traffic to Shift to Newly Paved Section of Queen Ka‘ahumanu Highway
The Hawai‘i Department of Transportation announces the transition of vehicular, bicycle and pedestrian traffic to the newly paved makai section of the Queen Ka‘ahumanu Highway.
Two-way traffic will be shifted between Hina Lani Street and a point north of Keahole Airport Road from the existing mauka roadway to the new makai portion of the Queen Ka‘ahumanu Highway starting at 9 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 23, 2017.
The shift in traffic is expected to be completed at approximately 6 a.m. Thursday, Aug. 24, weather permitting.
Traffic control measures, including flaggers and police officers, will be onsite to direct traffic during the transition.
The existing mauka portion of the Queen Ka‘ahumanu Highway between Keahole Airport Road and Hulikoa Drive will be closed following the traffic shift.
HDOT and all the project team members are committed to the completion of this project and anticipate that the Queen Ka‘ahumanu Highway Widening Phase 2 will be substantially complete in August 2018.
HDOT thanks the public for their patience as it continues working.
