The H-1 Freeway will be closed in the westbound direction overnight in the vicinity of the Radford Drive overpass from Thursday night, Sept. 14, through Friday morning, Sept. 15.
Crews need to install a permanent message sign that crosses all westbound lanes.
The closures will be in effect as follows:
- Three lanes will be closed (one lane open) in the westbound direction from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m.
- All lanes will be closed from 11 p.m. to 4 a.m.
- Nimitz Highway on-ramp to the westbound H-1 Freeway will be closed from 11 p.m. to 4 a.m.
Drivers traveling on the westbound H-1 Freeway will be directed to Kamehameha Highway via the Arizona Memorial/Stadium offramp (Exit 15A). Motorists are encouraged to use the H-201 Moanalua Freeway to bypass the work area.
“This project is one of four boards we’re putting up at the same time. One is at the Radford Drive area, one is near the Waikele interchange, one is near the Kalihi interchange, and one is near the Puuloa interchange,” said DOT Highways Division deputy director Ed Sniffen. “All those different areas we see as areas that are necessary to inform drivers of any incidents that they may need to look at alternate routes if necessary.”
Electronic message boards will be posted to warn motorists of the closures. Special duty police officers will be on-site to assist with traffic control and safety procedures.
Emergency vehicles, first responders, and TheBus have been notified of the roadwork and will be allowed through the work zone.
Roadwork is weather permitting.
