CITY DEDICATES KAPOLEI PARKWAY EXTENSION

 

            (Monday, February 1, 2010) – Mayor Mufi Hannemann and City officials today dedicated a six-lane Kapolei Parkway extension that will provide another connection between Ewa and Kapolei.  It will also give motorists a new approach to the H-1 freeway once the State Department of Transportation completes the construction of the North-South Road, tentatively scheduled for mid-February.

 

            Mayor Hannemann said, “This is another link to connect Ewa and Kapolei.  With the business and commercial growth of these areas, as well as their continuing expansion as major residential hubs, this new road will add an important dimension to the infrastructure of West Oahu.  The City has been very proactive in improving the roads and public facilities that the residents of this region need for a better quality of life now and well into the future.”

 

The City’s work included the construction of a new six-lane roadway with a landscaped median, a 10-foot multi-purpose pedestrian/bike path, new curbs and gutters, a sidewalk, a drainage system, street lighting, trees and landscaping, irrigation, and water and sewer utility work.

 

The parkway intersects with the state’s North-South Road and Renton Road.

 

            The road cost $15.5 million, of which $12.4 million was from the federal government.  Construction began in March 2008 and took a year to complete.

 

            The road was designed by R.M. Towill Company.  Construction manager was TM Designers, Inc.  Contractor was Albert C. Kobayashi, Inc.
