TRAFFIC ADVISORY:

 

MOTORISTS ADVISED TO AVOID

MOANALUA ROAD–KAONOHI STREET AREA

 

 

            The City will be making major changes to the pavement markings at the intersection of Moanalua Road and Kaonohi Street near Pearlridge Center and the Kam Swap Meet.  Work begins today, October 25, and will take three weeks.  Working hours are 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

 

            Motorists are advised to use alternate routes.  Additionally, parking will be eliminated permanently on Moanalua Road, from Pearlridge Community Park to Ualo Street, as part of this improvement project.

 

            Work includes adding another left-turn lane from Kaonohi Street onto Moanalua Road in both directions so there will be two left-turn lanes on the green arrow; decreasing the makai-bound through lanes from two to one on Kaonohi Street below the intersection with Moanalua Road; adding a dedicated right-turn lane on Moanalua Road onto Kaonohi in both directions; constructing a raised median and four-foot-high chain link fence on Kaonohi Street makai of Moanalua, to prevent jaywalking between Pearlridge Center and the Kam Swap Meet; modifying traffic signals; and extending the no-parking zones on Moanalua and Kaonohi.

 

            The cost of the project is $414,763.  Design consultant is Fukunaga & Associates, Inc.

Standard Electric is the contractor.
