H-1 work begins tonight

Advertiser Staff

The H-1 Freeway will be closed in both directions between the Halawa and Pearl City interchanges from 9:30 p.m. today to 4 a.m. tomorrow for work related to the H-1 widening project.

The H-1 will be completely closed in the same area in the westbound direction from 9:30 p.m. tomorrow to 4 a.m. Wednesday.

The right westbound lane will be closed from the H-1/Moanalua Freeway merge to the Pearl City off-ramp on the following dates:

  • 10 p.m. Friday to 10:30 a.m. Saturday
  • Sunday from 12:01 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.

State Department of Transportation workers will be installing expansion joints and new freeway signs. Drivers are asked to use alternate routes such as Kamehameha Highway or Moanalua Road through 'Aiea and Pearl City.

The work had been scheduled last week, but was delayed due to rain.
