CITY TO REPAVE LUSITANA STREET
The City and County of Honolulu will begin a year-long project to rehabilitate Lusitana Street, from School Street to Pauoa Road, beginning in October.
The work includes reconstruction of the asphalt concrete pavements; adjustment of utility manhole frames and covers; installation of pavement markings and vehicle loop detectors; reconstruction of existing concrete curbs and gutters; resetting of existing rock curbs; reconstruction of concrete catch basins; installation of concrete curb ramps, grade adjustment curbs, concrete sidewalks, concrete bus stops, and concrete driveways; and installation of traffic signal systems and pedestrian push-buttons.
Mayor Mufi Hannemann said, “Councilman Rod Tam has been championing this project for his district, and I’m pleased that we’ve been able to include it among our capital improvement priorities. We continue to enjoy excellent progress in repaving our roads—nearly 600 lane miles in the past four calendar years—and this latest project will add to that tally.”
The contractor is Grace Pacific Corporation. Initial contract amount is $3.65 million.
Work is scheduled to begin in early October and last for one year.
