Since construction resumed on January 30, our crews have been focused on: general project maintenance; excavation and construction of retaining walls near the National Park; installation of reclaimed waterline and corresponding structures; setting traffic signal and street light foundations; and completing conduit installation at Hulikoa and Ka’iminani Drive intersections. In the near future, we plan to install drainage structures on the south side of the project while also preparing Hulikoa Drive for a four-way signalized intersection. Additional temporary signals will be installed at Hulikoa Drive intersection in the coming weeks. This work should not affect Queen Ka’ahumanu traffic. Please check the website for future updates on the upcoming work.
Due to questions from the community, we would like to further address the recent work stoppage. This work stoppage was not due to any discovery of iwi on the work site, and HDOT continues to work with the appropriate parties to resolve the matters detailed in January 2017 Update posted on the website.
Thank you for your continued patience and understanding as we resume work on the highway.
