Starting July 18, road repaving projects will begin in the areas of Iwilei, Kalihi, Kapālama, Liliha, Punchbowl and Puʻunui.
These projects are a part of Mayor Kirk Caldwell’s road repaving program for the City and County of Honolulu, which began in 2013. Since then, the city has repaved more than 1,136 lane miles, with the goal of repaving 1,500 lane miles in a five-year span.
This latest project, scheduled to conclude in nine months, will pave more than 90 lane miles and cost $18.3 million. The process will include tree inspections, removal of run-down pavement, and resurfacing or reconstruction of asphalt concrete pavement. Crews are set to work between 8:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m., Monday to Friday, with possible weekend construction.
Anticipate delays in the specified areas, and pay attention to posted signs and special duty police officers. If you are parking in these areas, make sure to check the dates and times on roadway signs to ensure your vehicle doesn’t get towed.
Local traffic, deliveries and trash collection will be permitted during construction hours.
