NIGHT PAVING OF KING STREET IN MOILIILI BEGINS SUNDAY

 

            Night paving work begins Sunday, October 8, 2006, on South King Street from McCully Street to Old Waialae Road near the Hawaiian Humane Society, as part of the City’s rehabilitation of that stretch of King Street.

 

            Work hours will be from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. Sunday night to Friday morning each week. The work is expected to take about 45 calendar days to complete.

 

            Rehabilitation is the most comprehensive work the City performs on its roads. In addition to the asphalt resurfacing, some areas require deeper reconstruction of the pavement section, concrete bus pads, reconstruction of curbs and gutters, installation of new pavement markings and vehicle loop sensors.

           

            Mayor Mufi Hannemann said, “We apologize for the inconvenience this construction  will create for motorists and pedestrians, but this work has to be done. It’s part of our war on potholes after a long period of deferred maintenance by the previous administration. We literally have miles to go to catch up.”

 

            Some work on King Street has already been done during daylight hours. The paving will be done at night to minimize disruption of traffic on that busy artery.

                       

            Motorists are advised to avoid the area if possible; if not, use caution while driving through the work zone, observe all traffic controls and expect delays.  “No parking” signs will be posted 24 hours before work begins. Any vehicles parked within the posted limits will be towed at the owner’s expense.  Special duty police officers will be posted at key locations to assist motorists and pedestrians.

           

            The  King Street work is  part of  a road project that also includes rehabilitations of  Hind Drive, Luninakoa Street, Kupaua Place and Kirkwood Place in East Honolulu. Work on those streets will be after South King Street, during daylight hours. The contract for King and those roads has a total duration of 240 calendar days with a cost of about $4.2 million.
