HECO electrical work to bring traffic stoppages to Likelike Highway


    Hawaiian Electric Company is planning to replace power transmission equipment in the Kaneohe area next week.


Traffic stoppages are scheduled for Likelike Highway on Monday, Tuesday and Oct. 17 as the Hawaiian Electric Company replaces power transmission equipment in the Kaneohe area.

Between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m., there will be two to three 10-minute traffic stoppages as follows:

>> All lanes of traffic traveling in both directions on the Likelike Highway on the mountain side of the H-3 overpass will be closed intermittently.

>> The Kaneohe-bound H-3 exit ramp to Likelike Highway will be closed intermittently.

Contractors for HECO will be using a helicopter to carry equipment, ropes and cables from a transmission structure adjacent to the highway to another one located on the mountain ridge.

In addition, a single-lane closure on Likelike Highway is expected between 8:30 a.m and 3 p.m. weekdays. The Kaneohe-bound right lane of Likelike Highway will also be closed from the juncture of the Kaneohe-bound, H-3 exit ramp to a short distance beyond the H-3 overpass.

The project is expected to continue through the end of the month. For more information, motorists can call 543-4004.
