1 southbound lane on H-2 to close for rail work

By Star-Advertiser Staff

LAST UPDATED: 02:38 p.m. HST, Jun 30, 2014

As rail construction ramps up around the H-1/H-2 freeway interchange, road crews will have to close a southbound lane on the H-2 overnight in the coming days near that merge, project officials say.

The southbound lane closure will take place 9 p.m. Monday to 4 a.m. Tuesday, and then repeat 9 p.m. Tuesday to 4 a.m. Wednesday, according to a Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation release.

The closures are needed as crews prepare to erect columns in the freeway medians at the merge, according to HART.

"We ask the drivers for their continued patience and understanding during the work and to be mindful of our crews stationed along the freeway," HART CEO Dan Grabauskas said in the statement.

Really? Wait until your tax bills start going up to cover the cost of subsidizing rail and all the over paid rail union workers.

IRT to false it is very sad that many like yourselves feel powerless. I for one have always looked and voted for the best candidates and what they will bring to the table. We in Hawaii need to take back our government and vote these recycled politicians out of office. These incumbents came into office promising collective bargaining members a free ride and off the backs of the hard working people of Hawaii! Just look at what the unions have done I remember it took 17years to build H-1. When it was completed it was being expanded after completion because of the incompetence of our elected officials to figure out that our population was going to increase.What a waste!

Many feel powerless as they had gone so far to use voter suppression, under the guise of the election head's "math errors" to insure win for mayor and the guarantee that the rail project would go far as it did. It can still be stopped but Oahu residents, including all the union voters who let themselves be manipulated to rise up and vote for candidates like Ben who are against the train to nowhere and not be allowed to be swayed by PR campaigns from PRP, Winer, etc. No matter what Hawaii taxpayers will have lost at least 1 BILLION but that is better than losing 8-10 BILLION and ZERO possibility to build the right light rail and truly address Oahu's traffic problems by addressing the known chokepoints. By the way while UH and others schools are out, except for summer school, Kapolei residents driving to town are taking only about 40-45 minutes. The train, even when it is finished going from the Hoopili station in an empty field in Kapolei to Ala Moana center will take at least 45 minutes cause that 144,000 pound two car train has to stop every mile for 20 miles. And feeder buses from Ala Moana from a financial standpoint alone, cannot arrive an sooner than current levels so add about thirty to forty minutes MORE to get from Ala Mo to UH.
