Traffic Cameras Coming to Windward Oahu

 

            Traffic cameras are coming to Windward Oahu.

 

            The City’s Department of Transportation Services will be installing traffic cameras in the Kaneohe area.  Work was scheduled to begin September 22.  The project will be completed in May 2009.

 

Crews will work between 8:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.  Motorists are advised to plan for possible delays.

 

            The camera system will involve 19 cameras, fiber optic cabling, and communication equipment installed along Kamehameha Highway, from Castle Junction to Halaulani Street, and along Kahekili Highway, from Likelike Highway to Haiku Road.  The video images will be transmitted to the Traffic Management Center.

 

Upon completion of the project, the City will be able to monitor the traffic through the traffic cameras and adjust signal timing from the Traffic Management Center.  Motorists will have access to the video through the City’s website: http://www.honolulu.gov/cameras/traffic.htm

 

            Mayor Mufi Hannemann said, “Given that traffic congestion is our top quality-of-life issue, the expansion of our successful camera system will enable City transportation managers to more effectively monitor traffic flow and give motorists a means of keeping abreast of traffic conditions during their commutes.”

 

Contractor is Paul’s Electrical Service.  Cost is $1,697,000.

 

Future camera expansion projects are slated for Kailua, Kapolei, Waipio, and Waipahu.

 

            The City operates 135 traffic cameras, primarily in the urban corridor from Hawaii Kai to Kunia.
