The city’s Department of Design and Construction today announced adjustments to the work schedule for its ongoing emergency box drain project, which will impact roadways and traffic in Waikiki.
The modified schedule extends the duration of the project by an additional four weeks and shifts the start dates for subsequent phases accordingly.
The overall project schedule, however, is not anticipated to be significantly impacted, and the work is expected to be complete by Feb. 13, 2015.
A portion of Lewers Street, between Don Ho Street and Kalia Road; and a portion of Kalia Road, between Lewers Street and Saratoga Road, will be closed Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
A summary of revised dates for each construction phase is provided below.
- Phase 1 construction – The Lewers Street right lane will be closed between Don Ho Street and Helumoa Road. This work began on Sept. 15 and is anticipated to be completed Nov. 26.
- Phase 2 construction – Lewers Street will be closed entirely between Helumoa Road and Kalia Road. Loading/unloading zones fronting the Imperial Resort will be closed. Alternative loading/unloading zones can either be used along Beach Walk or at designated areas along Saratoga Road (makai bound). This phase is anticipated to last from Nov. 27 to Dec. 23.
- Phase 3 construction – The Kalia Road left lane will be closed between Lewers Street and Beach Walk from Dec. 24 to Jan. 12, 2015.
