DOT RELEASE: STATE HIGHWAYS LANE CLOSURES FOR OAHU NOW AVAILABLE ON ARCGIS
ArcGIS map allows road users to visualize full, lane, and shoulder closures for freeways and highways on Oahu. Neighbor Island closures will be added in March/April.
HONOLULU – The Hawaii Department of Transportation (HDOT) announces the availability of a map for the public to view scheduled roadwork on state highways. The map was created by HDOT staff using ArcGIS tools provided through the Hawaii Statewide GIS Program.
The Lane Closure Public Access Map is meant to replace the lane closure listings currently sent out by HDOT every Thursday and Friday and can be accessed by going to the HDOT roadwork page at http://hidot.hawaii.gov/highways/roadwork/ or by visiting http://arcg.is/1HaWvi
“We wanted to create a visual of all of our planned closures to help the public plan their commutes,” said Hawaii Department of Transportation Deputy Director for Highways Ed Sniffen. “We also want to hear what the public thinks about this tool versus the written lists we currently send out.”
Members of the public can fill out a quick survey through https://hidot.granicusideas.com/ to let HDOT know if they prefer to view closures on the current list, the new map, or both.
Neighbor Island closures will be added to the Lane Closure Public Access Map in March and April. HDOT will send out news releases as the lane closure map for each island becomes available.
