HONOLULU – The Hawaii Department of Transportation (HDOT) informs Oahu motorists of a right lane closure (eastbound direction) and lane shifts for the Farrington Highway Maipalaoa Bridge Replacement project in Maili. Work will begin on Tuesday, Feb. 18 to install delineators and temporary striping that will allow HDOT to maintain three travel lanes (reduced from four lanes) during the replacement project. The closure and lane shift will also go into effect Tuesday.
One eastbound (Honolulu bound) lane and two westbound lanes will be set up throughout the week, and to facilitate the afternoon commute. The middle lane will be contraflowed to provide two eastbound lanes for the morning commute, between the hours of 9 p.m. to 1 p.m. the following day, Monday through Friday. HDOT will monitor the contraflow and make any timing adjustments as needed.
Motorists are advised to expect delays, use caution in the area and observe posted speed limits for their safety and the safety of the workers. All roadwork is weather permitting.
