POSTED: 01:30 a.m. HST, Aug 07, 2012

~~<p><strong>Question:</strong> I see where the state Department of Transportation is narrowing the lane width on part of the H-1 freeway to 10 feet. Since the H-1, H-2 and H-3 freeways are technically part of the Interstate System, which was built to facilitate military movement, aren't there rules governing lane width? I hope someone checked this.</p>
<p><strong>Answer:</strong> The Federal Highway Administration says, &quot;It is always desired to have a minimum 12-foot lane width for all freeway travel lanes.&quot;</p>
