Repairs continue tomorrow on west-bound H-1 Viaduct
Advertiser StaffThe state Department of Transportation advises Oahu motorists that the three rightmost lanes of the H-1 Freeway Airport Viaduct will be closed in the west-bound direction from the Airport on-ramp to the Kamehameha Highway/Aloha Stadium/Arizona Memorial off-ramp tomorrow, from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., for concrete pavement repair work. All on-ramps and off-ramps will remain open during this time.
The scheduled roadwork is part of a $9.1 million project to repair potholes along a nearly three-mile stretch of the H-1 Freeway Airport Viaduct between Middle Street and Valkenburgh Street. Crews will use a fast-forming concrete to fill in potholes. To minimize vibrations along the viaduct while the concrete cures, the speed limit near the repair area will be reduced to 15 mph. Special-duty police officers will be on-site to enforce this speed limit.
Westbound motorists are advised to use caution while driving through the work area, to allow for extra travel time and/or to use alternative routes including the H-201 Moanalua Freeway or Nimitz Highway underneath the H-1 Airport Viaduct.
