The City and County of Honoluluís Department of Environmental Services has contracted the final four phases of sewer rehabilitation work in the Kalihi and Nuuanu areas of Honolulu.

The total Kalihi-Nuuanu Sewer Rehabilitation project is split into nine different phases ranging from upper Nuuanu to lower Kalihi at a total cost of $50.3 million. 

Five of the nine sewer rehabilitation projects began in the vicinity earlier this year:  Phase 1F (May), Phases 1G&I (June), Phase 1H (July) and Phase 1E (August).

Three of four remaining major projects, Phases 1A-1C-1D, begin in November, while last one, Phase 1B, starts in January 2009.  These four projects account for $32.7 million of the total cost.

Phase 1A, which takes place from January 2009 to January 2010, covers the large block bordered by Puuhale Road, Kalani Street, Ahuula Street and Kalihi Street.

Phase 1B work is scheduled from January 2009 to January 2010 in middle Kalihi with some of the major streets affected including Gulick Avenue, Puuhale Road, North King Street and Pinkham Street.

Phase 1C stretches across upper Kalihi from November 2008 to December 2009.  Major thoroughfares affected will be Gulick Avenue, Kalihi Street, School Street and Middle Street, along with numerous other small sections of side streets.


Phase 1D involves the Lanakila, south Punchbowl area and Pacific Heights.  The work is slated for November 2008 to September 2009.  Major roads affected will be Lanakila Avenue, Alaneo Street, Lolena Street, Pacific Heights Road, Wilder Avenue and Captain Cook Avenue.

The repairs in each phase range from $2.1 million to $10.4 million.  Most of the sewer pipes in this part of town are between 70-90 years old and badly in need of repair.

During construction, the projects will have temporary noise, air quality and traffic impacts.  Updates to the projects will be done each Friday on the following website:

Bowers & Kubota is the construction management firm overseeing the projects with bid contracts awarded to six contractors:  MIRA Image Construction, Rons Construction Corporation, Ideal Construction, RMY Construction Inc., Integrated Construction and Frank Coluccio Construction Company.
