To accommodate area businesses:

  • Access to this portion of Keawe Street will remain open via the Ala Moana Boulevard side of Keawe Street
  • Motorists traveling on Auahi Street will not be allowed to turn onto Keawe Street heading towards Ala Moana Boulevard.
  • Motorists traveling towards Ala Moana Boulevard on Keawe Street mauka of Auahi Street will have to turn right or left at Auahi Street.


Motorists are encouraged to avoid this segment of Keawe Street during construction and to use alternative routes to reach their destinations.

The $11.4 million project began in March 2013 with the relocation of water lines to allow for construction of access pits. This very important infrastructure rehabilitation project is estimated to be completed by March 2014.
