Phase 1 Lane and Ramp Closures

Tuesday, April 15


Lane closures:  Beginning from 9:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m.

  • Eastbound – 2 lanes will be closed, shifting lane closures will be in effect eastbound.
  • Westbound – 2 lanes will be closed, shifting lane closures will be in effect westbound.

Ramp closures: 

  • Eastbound:  The Kalihi St (mauka and makai bound) and Pali on-ramps and the Pali and Punchbowl off-ramps will be closed from 9:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m.     
  • Westbound:  NO RAMPS will be closed.  

All lanes and ramps will re-open by 5:00 a.m.

During this phase of the project at night, there will be 2 lanes closed in both directions of the freeway from Likelike Highway to Ward Avenue at 9:00 p.m., re-opening by 5:00 a.m. This leaves one lane for the traveling public. These lane closures occur from Sunday evening to Friday morning. There are no lane closures Friday night, Saturday morning or night, or Sunday morning.

Speed limits will be modified to 35 mph (from 45 mph) during the evening lane closures wherever there is one lane open. Please observe traffic control devices and proceed through the work zone with caution. All ramps are 35 mph.  The public is encouraged to use alternate routes or to avoid the area if possible.

During the day, shoulder work continues between the hours of 7:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Mondays through Saturdays. No lanes are closed during the day.

Shifting Lane Closures continue


Work at night will be occurring in the median area as well as on the shoulder in varying segments.  There will be two lanes closed at night in both directions of the freeway from Likelike Highway to Ward Avenue at 9:00 p.m., re-opening by 5:00 a.m., which will “shift” from one side to the other within the project limits.  This leaves one “shifting” lane for the traveling public – please use caution and follow the signs and coning for these lane shifts.

Ramps are typically closed when work is being accomplished on the ramp.  However, due to these “shifting” lanes, some On-Ramps and Off-Ramps will be closed to allow for safe travel through the project site even if there is no work on the ramp itself.

If the freeway is slower than 20 miles per hour – take surface streets. If at all possible avoid the area. Always allow yourself extra travel time. Take alternate routes.
