(Fri., March 1, 2013) − The Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation (HART) wants to inform drivers of lane closures during the next two weekends in the urban Honolulu area related to the rail transit project.


Motorists are advised of trench restoration work in the downtown Honolulu and Kaka`ako areas that may require road and lane closures during non-peak traffic hours. The restoration work follows archaeological survey work recently conducted along the urban Honolulu section of the Honolulu rail transit route.


For the safety of both the work crews and motorists, the public is advised to proceed with caution through these areas. Drivers should anticipate possible traffic delays or use alternate routes during work hours, and provide a safe distance between themselves and the construction workers and equipment.


Lane or road closures will take place at the following locations:

  • Punchbowl Street between Pohukaina Street and Ala Moana Boulevard will be closed on March 2 and 3 (tomorrow and Sunday) from 7 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Drivers heading makai on Punchbowl Street during work hours will not be able to directly access Ala Moana Boulevard. Motorists will be detoured onto Pohukaina Street and will still be able to access Ala Moana Boulevard via South Street.
  • Lane closures along Halekauwila Street between Keawe and Cooke streets on March 9 and 10 (Saturday and Sunday) from 7 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
