As we proceed with work on the Queen K Highway, we are aware of the upcoming Ironman World Championship that will be held on Saturday, Oct 8th here in Kailua-Kona. We will continue to monitor our project site to ensure the safety of cyclists, motorists and other users of the highway. We will be performing extra sweeping on the shoulders of the highway that border the Project Site.
For safety reasons, we continue to ask the public to please stay out of the construction zone. This also includes unauthorized vehicles parking in the project site area.
As for construction progress, the job continues work near the Kealakehe intersection. Crews have been installing the gravity sewer and reclaimed water lines. Also, the sewer force main installation has begun. Both will continue in the upcoming weeks. Street light and interconnect conduit installation will begin this week between the National Park and Kealakehe intersection. In the north section of the Project, street light poles are being raised near the Keahole intersection. We continue to complete the culvert outlet structures and anticipate pouring concrete for the remaining structures in October.
Thank you for your continued patience and understanding while the work continues on the Queen K Highway.
