TRAFFIC ADVISORY: NIGHT WORK CONSTRUCTION
KEAWE STREET BETWEEN ALA MOANA BOULEVARD AND AUAHI STREET
Honolulu – The Department of Design and Construction today announced night construction work along Keawe Street beginning Sunday, October 13, through Thursday, October 17, as part of a major sewer line rehabilitation project.
A portion of Keawe Street, between Ala Moana Boulevard and Auahi Street, will have night construction work from 8:30 p.m. to 5:00 a.m., daily, Sunday through Thursday.
Motorists are encouraged to avoid this segment of Keawe Street during construction and to use alternative routes to reach their destinations. Motorists should stay alert for police officers guiding traffic, lane restrictions, detours, changing traffic patterns, and moving construction equipment, vehicles, and personnel.
The project consists of sliplining rehabilitation of 1,980 lineal feet of an existing 6’ x 6’ box sewer and the installation of approximately 210 lineal feet of new 6-inch diameter sewer pipe at 711 Ala Moana Boulevard. The existing 6’ x 6’ box sewer to be rehabilitated runs along Auahi Street from Kamani Street to the west and turns makai on Keawe Street. The sliplining rehabilitation involves the construction of access pits at strategic locations along the existing box sewer. The top portions of the existing box sewer will be cut open and new 60-inch diameter piping will be placed into the box and slid into place, creating a new pipeline within the old structure. The $11.4 million project began in March and is estimated to take one year to complete.
