The state Department of Transportation is advising motorists of road closures on Vineyard Boulevard scheduled for Sunday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. in the area of the Punchbowl St. intersection, Palama St. intersection, and the Nuuanu Ave. intersection for road re-paving and re-striping work.
Lanes will be closed in both directions at the Punchbowl and Nuuanu intersection for reconstruction of weakened pavement, cold planning and repaving.
At the Palama St. intersection, lanes in the eastbound direction will be closed for temporary striping, transportation officials said.
Drivers can expect traffic delays and are advised to use the H-1 freeway, Beretania St. and King St. as alternative routes.
Roadwork is weather permitting.
The Vineyard Boulevard project will provide motorists and pedestrians with a safe roadway and improved infrastructure. This project includes reconstructing weakened pavement areas, replacing damaged curbs, gutters and sidewalks, installing new bus pads and loop detectors and replacing existing traffic signal heads with new, energy-efficient, LED optical units.
Updates regarding the Vineyard Boulevard project will be available on the Department of Transportation website at hidot.hawaii.gov. For up to date roadwork notifications, please follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
