Board of Water Supply’s Farrington Highway Projects

Phase 1 project – to install a 24-inch water line between Aliinui Drive and the Old Farrington Highway Intersection

The contractor is currently working on Farrington Highway, east of Laaloa street and will need to cross over Farrington Highway from the makai to the mauka side of the road. Because of this cross over, lane closures will change daily. A contraflow will be in effect as much as possible during the project’s working hours (8 a.m.-2:30 p.m.); the traffic conditions will determine which direction will get the two open lanes of traffic. There will be two special duty offices on hand to help direct traffic and to assist in making immediate lane closure changes.

Part 1, Phase A project – to install a 12- and 24-inch water main between Haleakala Ave and Black Rock

The contractor has completed installing the new 12-inch water line and has begun to preparations for the installation of the new 24-inch water line, which will be installed in the farthest makai, town-bound lane. The contractor is beginning work at Halekala Avenue and plans to work out towards Black Rock. For this week, the farthest makai, town bound lane near Halekala Avenue will be closed. There will be a contraflow in place. Between the project start time at 8 a.m. and about mid-day, two town bound and one west bound lane will be open; then the contraflow will be reversed until the end of the work day at 2:30 p.m. to allow one open town bound and two open west bound lanes. While only one lane will be closed this week, there will, however, be times when we will need to close both town-bound lanes.

Please continue to check or call 748-5310 for weekly detailed lane closure and project information. Please kokua and help to share this information with your friends, family and fellow community members so everyone can plan their travel times accordingly.
