EMERGENCY SHORELINE REPAIRS ON KAMEHAMEHA HIGHWAY IN HAU'ULA NORTH OF POKIWAI BRIDGE STARTS TODAY
HONOLULU – The Hawaii Department of Transportation (HDOT) advises motorists that the makai (oceanside) lane of Kamehameha Highway in Hauula north of Pokiwai Bridge was reopened at 2:07 p.m., Saturday, Jan. 4.
The lane was closed late Friday, Jan. 3 due to the shoulder and portion of the lane falling into the ocean.
Repairs to approximately 270-feet of undermined shoulder will begin at 7 a.m. Sunday, Jan. 5, and will continue through the week of Jan. 6-10. Work hours will be from 7 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., daily. During work hours, the makai lane will be closed and traffic in both directions will be maintained through contraflow.
Outside of work hours, the makai (oceanside) lane will be reopened.
Crews will stabilize the highway by placing filter fabric, filling in the undermined area with cobblestones, topping off the cobble with controlled low-strength material (CLSM) cement, and repaving the highway.
Previously scheduled permit work in Hauula at Hulahula Place and Kaipapau Loop will be canceled.
