Schedule of lane closures due to rail transit project work: Feb. 1-6

The Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation (HART) wants to inform drivers of lane closures along Kamehameha Highway in Pearl City beginning Monday evening as part of rail construction.

The 24-hour lane closures, which will run until mid-year, are needed to allow crews to safely conduct shaft and column work along the highway median for the planned rail guideway:
• One eastbound left-turn lane from Kamehameha Highway onto Acacia Road fronting Pearl Highlands Center will be closed. For safety reasons, U-turns will be restricted in the eastbound direction of Kamehameha Highway at the Acacia Road intersection during the lane closure.
• One westbound left-turn lane and the inside westbound lane of Kamehameha Highway near the Acacia Road intersection will also be closed 24 hours a day as part of the shaft and column work.
Motorists who routinely use this stretch of Kamehameha Highway should provide themselves extra time during their commute.
