About 317 lane-miles of city road have been paved across Oahu so far this year, keeping a new effort to repair the island's crumbling roads on pace, city officials said today.
Mayor Kirk Caldwell set a goal in January to repave 1,500 of Honolulu's more than 3,500 lane-miles in the next five years, so road crews would have to repair 300 lane-miles on average each year.
A new report released by the mayor's office this morning indicates the 317 repaved lane-miles done so far this year are spread around the island, including in McCully-Moiliili, Hawaii Kai, Mililani, Wahiawa, Kapolei and other areas.
