Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell announced that beginning Monday, March 28, the city will begin work on a repaving project for residential, feeder, and secondary streets that were not paved due to utility conflicts in the areas of Foster Village, Honolulu, Kailua, Newtown, Mililani, Mililani Tech Park, Moanalua Valley, Pearlridge, Red Hill, Salt Lake, West Loch Estates and West Loch Fairways.
This project will total nearly 100 lane miles at a cost of $24 million. Roadwork will begin in the West Loch Estates area and progress toward Honolulu.
Crews will work between the hours of 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, with possible weekend construction.
Barring weather related delays, the project is scheduled to be completed within 320 days.
The contract includes the pre-construction inspection of manholes and documenting their locations; tree inspections; removal of worn-out pavement; and the resurfacing or reconstruction of asphalt concrete pavement. Additional activities include tree pruning and/or removal of trees identified by the city arborist; adjustment of utility manhole frames and covers; reconstruction of damaged concrete curbs and gutters; installation of pavement markers, striping and markings; and installation of vehicle detector loops.
Speed bumps on private roads will be removed and will not be replaced.
On-street parking will be prohibited during working hours, so motorists should observe the dates and times on posted roadway signs. Illegally parked vehicles will be towed, if necessary, at the owner’s expense.
Local residential traffic, deliveries, and trash collection will be allowed during construction hours.
Grace Pacific, LLC is coordinating local traffic. Please call Grace Pacific at (808) 842-3231 or AECOM at (808) 366-2588 with any concerns.
This is the latest project under the mayor’s comprehensive road repaving program for the City and County of Honolulu. Since the beginning of 2013, the city has repaved more than 1,012 lane miles across the island.
