THE state, Campbell Estate and Finance Realty are putting the finishing touches on a joint project widening Farrington Highway from two to four lanes from Fort Barrette Road to Kapolei Golf Course Road.

And where they leave off, the city is planning to pick up.

map The city -- while saying the two parts of the widening are not really related to one another -- is planning to widen the highway from two lanes to four from Kapolei Golf Course Road to Fort Weaver Road.

The state Housing and Community Development Corp. joined forces with Campbell Estate and developer Finance Realty on the $10.1-million widening on the Kapolei side of the highway, which began in August 1998 and is expected to be completed within a few weeks.

"The rapid growth of the city of Kapolei and its surrounding neighborhoods made the Farrington widening project a necessary improvement," said Mike Warren, Campbell Estate land development manager.

As far as the city's widening of the Ewa-side stretch, no construction is foreseen in the immediate future, said project manager Greg Hee of the city Department of Design and Construction.

Widening of Farrington Highway is part of the Oahu Metropolitan Planning Organization's regional transportation plan, which identifies long-term, four-lane improvements to the highway through 2020, Hee added.

The city is beginning environmental documentation and planning and preliminary engineering studies, which need to be completed to get construction cost estimates, Hee said.

"We're designing for the 2020 forecast. ... We expect to complete planning work next year," he said.

This initial planning will cost about $500,000, Hee added. Among other things, officials must determine what land or right-of-way acquisitions are needed.

The city is considering some realignment to straighten out curves and enhance safety, Hee said.
