Massive highway project will require closures through next year

The evidence of what’s to come is already lining parts of the Pali Highway in both directions.

A large-scale resurfacing project is about to begin.

It’s something Windward Oahu residents, including state Rep. Chris Lee, have been waiting for.

“We’ve been pushing for this project for many years, and it’s something that has had a lot of false starts,” Lee said. “But I think the community is really happy that it’s finally going to happen. So we need to make sure the progress moves forward in a timely manner and that we are done on schedule and on budget.”

The project will get underway after a blessing Wednesday morning, and will include new street lights along with new pavement across all lanes of the highway that sees anywhere from 30,000 to 41,000 drivers every day.

Here’s how the construction schedule breaks down:
