  • STAR-ADVERTISER

    A city operation to clean up the area under the Nimitz Viaduct took place on Oct. 23. The Nimitz bike path between Ahua and Middle streets will be closed for two weeks beginning Monday for the continuation of cleanup efforts that began beneath the H-1 freeway viaduct last week, according to state officials.

The Nimitz bike path between Ahua and Middle streets will be closed for two weeks beginning Monday for the continuation of cleanup efforts that began beneath the H-1 freeway viaduct last week, according to state officials.

The state Department of Transportation, in partnership with several other agencies, said it “will be working to address health and safety concerns” along the bike path mauka of the viaduct, a continuation of the sweep of homeless encampments in the area.

The multi-agency team, which includes the Office of the Homeless Coordinator and Sherriffs Division, will offer outreach to illegal campers and enforce its state law prohibiting the placement or storage of structures, vehicles and equipment within the state highway right-of-way without permission.

Last week, the state finished clearing out an estimated 180 people and more than four million pounds of trash from beneath the viaduct. The area is now fenced off and used for storage by the Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation.
