Maka­puu Work Re­set For Nights

MidWeek Islander (East Oahu) - - FRONT PAGE -

Construction hours have been re­vised for the state Depart­ment of Trans­porta­tion’s $7.8 mil­lion project to re­pair the re­tain­ing wall on Kala­ni­anaole High­way.

The new sched­ule will fo­cus the ma­jor­ity of work dur­ing night­time hours ( 9: 30 p. m. to 5: 30 a. m.), keep­ing lanes open dur­ing the day. How­ever, if it is nec­es­sary for the con­trac­tor to prompt a lane clo­sure dur­ing the day, a no­tice will be is­sued two weeks be­fore­hand, and con­traflows will be used.

Mod­i­fied night work, in­volv­ing the full clo­sure of the high­way be­tween the up­per Maka­puu Look­out park­ing lot and the Maka­puu Beach Park park­ing en­trance, will last un­til Fri­day ( Dec. 4), fol­lowed by a hol­i­day break.

Mo­torists trav­el­ing be­tween Hawaii Kai and Waimanalo dur­ing construction hours are ad­vised to use Pali High­way as an al­ter­nate route. Work will re­sume in Jan­uary and should be fin­ished at the end of 2010.

At a re­cent town meet­ing con­ducted by DOT of­fi­cials, con­cerned Waimanalo res­i­dents said the lane clo­sures would af­fect area busi­nesses dur­ing the time of construction.
