As of March 7th crews are in the process of digging, laying, and back filling reclaim waterline, sewer, and drain inlet structures. Installation of drain structures and miscellaneous facilities will be continuing for the next several weeks.
The installation of the traffic signal system and temporary signals will be starting in March and April, with paving start planned for May.
As a reminder, the traffic management and staging plan is broken into five (5) stages. Stages 1 and 2 involve the grading and construction of the new lanes from the north end all of the way to the south end. Traffic will transition onto the new lanes from north of Keahole Airport to south of Hulikoa Street starting in August through October of 2016. Starting in November of 2016, traffic will all be transitioned to the new travel lanes while resurfacing of the existing highway takes place. Final surfacing of the new southbound lanes will begin in May of 2017, with one lane open in the southbound direction and two lanes open on the newly resurfaced northbound lanes.
