The Hawai‘i Department of Transportation Airports Division alerts the public about a temporary lane closure on Aolele Street at the Daniel K. Inouye International Airport for construction activities on the new Mauka Concourse project.

Right turns will be restricted from the airport to Aolele Street, near the US Post Office, during overnight construction hours from 9:30 p.m. to 5:30 a.m., Sunday nights through Friday mornings from Aug. 19 through Sept. 14, 2018 (excluding the night of Sunday, Sept. 2).

During the closure, access to the US Post Office will be accessible on Aolele Street from Nimitz Highway. Signs will be placed throughout the area to alert drivers of the closure.

The new $220 million Mauka Concourse will be located on the Ewa side of the airport and will connect with Terminal 1 (the former Interisland Terminal).

The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver Certified facility will accommodate 11 narrow body aircraft or six wide body aircraft. The second-level departure area will include a new air-conditioned Transportation Security Administration checkpoint with six lanes to screen passengers faster and reduce the amount of time spent in security lines.


Construction on the Mauka Concourse and demolition of the former Commuter Terminal began June 1, 2018.
