Sunday roadwork to close several H-1 lanes
Waianae-bound traffic will be affected by two repair projects
Be prepared for traffic backups in the Waianae-bound direction of the H-1 freeway Sunday as the Department of Transportation does work on the Airport Viaduct and repaves a section of freeway in Waikele.
Three Waianae-bound lanes of the Airport Viaduct will be closed from the Airport onramp to the Kamehameha Highway/Aloha Stadium/Arizona Memorial offramp from 4:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., for concrete pavement repair work.
The speed limit near the repair area will be reduced to 15 mph while the concrete cools.
The roadwork is part of a $9.1 million project to repair potholes on the freeway between Middle Street and Valkenburgh Street. Crews will use a fast-forming concrete to fill in potholes.
Motorists are advised to allow for extra travel time or to use alternate routes including Moanalua Freeway or Nimitz Highway.
Near Waikele the ZipperLane will be deployed at 5 p.m. Sunday in the Waianae direction because of overnight repaving work on the H-1 freeway in the Waianae direction between Kunia Road and Paiwa Street in the Waikele/Waipahu area.
The early deployment of the ZipperLane will separate resurfacing crews from freeway traffic. Construction hours will be between 9 p.m. and 4:30 a.m. The ZipperLane will then open to morning rush-hour traffic on its normal schedule at 5:30 a.m. Monday morning.
Nightly roadwork, with no early ZipperLane deployment, will resume Monday night through Friday morning from 9 p.m. to 4:30 a.m. nightly.
This project will resurface all lanes along the 1.83 mile-stretch of H-1 between Waipahu Street and the Waikele Stream Bridge and also includes the on- and offramps at the Paiwa Interchange and the eastbound Waipahu offramp. Contractor Grace Pacific Corp. is scheduled to complete the $4.6 million project in June.
