Rail Construction Impacting HEC
September 3, 2019
Beginning Tuesday, September 3, rail construction will impact westbound traffic on Nimitz Highway 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The expected duration of this impact is 1 month. Nimitz Highway westbound starting near the Nimitz viaduct will be reduced to one lane 24/7 during this period. The lane closure area is less than half a mile, however, please plan for extra travel time through the work zone. Additional lanes may be closed on Nimitz Highway to support movement of heavy equipment and for construction activities.
August 1, 2019
Two-way traffic on Waiwai Loop has been restored and is anticipated to continue through March or April 2020. This means vehicles may now exit and enter on either the Mauka or Makai side of Waiwai loop. When utility relocation starts on Waiwai Loop in 2020, one-way traffic on the Makai side of Waiwai Loop will be reinstated.
(Previously, from May through July 2019, traffic flow on the Makai side of Waiwai Loop had been one-way only, allowing vehicles to only exit there. No vehicles were allowed to enter the Makai side of the loop. Entrance in to Waiwai Loop was only accessible on the Mauka side of the loop.)
