City officials said today that work on an extensive repaving project in the Manoa Valley area is scheduled to begin next Monday and will involve more than 30 roads, including Oahu Avenue, Old East Manoa Road and Woodlawn Drive.
Work hours will be from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, with some weekend work. The project is expected to take up to a year to complete, city officials said.
They said the project includes resurfacing and reconstruction of asphalt concrete pavements, the adjustment of utility manhole frames and covers, and installation of pavement markings. It will also involve the reconstruction of existing concrete curbs and gutters, and tree removal and trimming, officials said.
Motorists are advised to drive with caution through the construction area. Drivers in the area should anticipate delays and allow for extra travel time. Illegally parked vehicles may be towed if necessary at the owner’s expense.
Contractor Maui Kupono Builders LLC will coordinate local traffic, including deliveries, trash collection and emergency services, city officials said, adding that on-street parking will be prohibited during working hours.
