Hard­ing Av­enue Will Get Eas­ier And Wider

MidWeek Islander (East Oahu) - - EAST OAHU SPORTS -

A $ 2.6 mil­lion road­widen­ing project will help to im­prove traf­fic flow on Hard­ing Av­enue in Kaimuki and, ac­cord­ing to act­ing Mayor Kirk Cald­well, it also will re­lieve con­ges­tion onto the H-1 free­way.

Con­trac­tor Par­a­digm Con­struc­tion is pre­par­ing to widen Hard­ing Av­enue and cre­ate new left-turn lanes at two sig­nal­ized in­ter­sec­tions — Hard­ing and 5th av­enues, and Hard­ing and 11th av­enues. The new left-turn lanes should re­duce de­lays at the in­ter­sec­tions and pro­vide more ef­fi­cient traf­fic sig­nal phas­ing.

“We’re putting fed­eral stim­u­lus money to good use to im­prove the traf­fic flow and pub­lic-safety in this area and oth­ers,” Cald­well said.

The project is be­ing en­tirely funded through the fed­eral Amer­i­can Re­cov­ery and Rein­vest­ment Act and is ex­pected to take up to 11 months to com­plete.

Start date is pend­ing fi­nal co­or­di­na­tion de­tails.
