FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
April 8, 2004

 

 CITY TO BEGIN ROAD RESURFACING ON ALAKEA, BISHOP STREETS, AND PUOWAINA, TANTALUS DRIVES

Motorists are advised that the City will begin overlayment on portions of Alakea and Bishop Streets on Friday and Saturday (April 9 and 10), followed by resurfacing work by a private contractor on Puowaina and Tantalus Drives starting on Monday (April 12).

Overlay resurfacing will be done to Alakea Street (from Queen to Hotel Streets), and Bishop Street (from Queen to Beretania Streets), on the Good Friday holiday and Saturday to minimize the impact on downtown traffic. 

            On Monday, paving will begin on Puowaina Drive (between Lusitana Street and the Punchbowl Cemetery) and Tantalus Drive (between Puowaina Drive and Makiki Heights Drive) between 8:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m., weather permitting.  Crews will start from the top of Tantalus Drive and work down.  The work will include cold planing and resurfacing of the roads, and require closure of one lane of traffic in the construction area.

            The Puowaina and Tantalus drive project is a continuation of the Cityís emergency road work effort that has already resurfaced major portions of King Street, Beretania Street, Kapiolani Boulevard, Young Street, Piikoi Street, Kaheka Street, Monsarrat Avenue and Kalakaua Avenue.  The City will continue with its emergency repair and contract work on heavily traveled roadways in Honoluluís urban core and the major roads in residential areas.

 Off-duty police officers will assist motorists around the construction zones.  Permanent pavement striping, manhole adjustments and loop detector work will follow.
