PROJECT UPDATE: Week of May 8, 2017

All concrete retaining walls on the project will be completed this coming week, allowing utility and roadway construction to progress on both the North and South segments of the project. The multiple underground utility crossings on the project at Kealakehe Parkway near Honokohau Harbor were completed in early April. Gravity sewer and reclaimed utility installation has progressed from Hina Lani to the National Park Entrance. Hulikoa has been built into a 4-way signalized intersection allowing the public to access Kohanaiki development and Pine Trees Beach.

North of Hulikoa Intersection, crews will finalize roadway subgrade and continue to place and finish geogrid and aggregate base course in preparation for paving. Permanent traffic signal poles will also be installed throughout this portion of the project. South of Hulikoa intersection crews will focus on waterproofing and backfilling completed retaining wall structures, cutting concrete swales to grade, forming and pouring concrete swales, progressing all three sewer utilities, and continuing the installation of temporary traffic signals.

Once roadway grading North of Hulikoa intersection is completed, we anticipate to begin paving that portion of the road around early June. Once paving begins increased work activity can be expected at Keahole Airport Road and OTEC. Please continue to check the website for updates regarding intersection specific closures, traffic changes and or expected delays, and paving dates.

Please continue to help us keep motorists, pedestrians, and our workers safe by respecting the posted work zone speed limits. The project site is closed to the general public so please plan exercise routes accordingly to help keep the community safe.
