Perhaps it was the much ado that led, thankfully, to nothing much.
The state Department of Transportation's much heralded H-1 rehabilitation project -- aka Carmageddon Hawaii -- continued Monday with a second consecutive night of a complete shutdown in the eastbound lanes of the H-1 freeway from Likelike Highway to Ward Avenue.
And if the early indications were correct, it appeared the department's months-long effort to inform the public about the potentially snarl-inducing closure was successful in encouraging Honolulu drivers to adjust their schedules or seek alternative routes.
