Repair work to snarl traffic on H-1

By Star-Advertiser staff


Oahu drivers planning to use the H-1 freeway Sunday through early Monday morning could face repair-related traffic delays, state transportation officials warn.

There will be multiple lane closures in the Ewa-bound H-1 freeway between the Pearl City/Waimalu off­ramp and the Waipahu off­ramp for viaduct repairs starting 9 a.m. Sunday through 5 a.m. Monday, according to the state Department of Transportation.

Two Koko Head-bound freeway lanes from the Kamehameha Highway overpass to the H-1 and H-2 merge also will be closed from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday.

The roadwork is scheduled to take place every Sunday in April, DOT spokeswoman Caroline Sluyter said. The project faces noise restrictions at night, and short work hours limit the area that can be fixed at one time, she said.

However, working on Sunday allows the department to get four times more work done, shortening the overall repair project's duration, she added.

What else is new? The traffic jams are a nightmare, period. It doesn't matter what time of day it is, so throwing in construction/repair delays just adds to the incredible amount of time people have to waste, sitting in their cars, goin nowhere.

Does this mean we will have our roads back to normal 4 times sooner- 2013 instead of 2017? The overtime pay makes it 4 times costlier.

for our island state - i have always favored two-wheeled modes of transportation. four wheels is an over blown American cultural ideal. statutorially limiting the number of registered four-wheeled vehicles allowed per family would have immense sociological implications - more postive than negative! but.....since when did common sense ever prevail?
