BWS Construction Projects to Resume Jan. 4

From: FarringtonProjects

Subject: BWS Construction Projects to Resume Jan. 4


Just a friendly reminder that construction work will resume for the Board of Water Supply's (BWS) water main replacement projects on Farrington Highway beginning on Monday, January 4, 2010.

Crews will be working on Farrington Highway between Nanakuli and Laumania Avenues, Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Both center lanes will be closed to traffic. The BWS will open the emergency access bridge at Nanakuli Beach Park during working hours so there will be two open eastbound lanes of traffic. As a reminder, large trucks and buses heading eastbound must stay in the left-hand lane and stay on Farrington Highway. Motorists are also advised to abide by posted traffic signs, to use caution when traveling through the construction area and to allow for extra travel time.

Also beginning on Monday, January 4, 2010, the BWS will start the next phase of its construction project in Nanakuli (Farrington Highway Part 1, Phase B). This phase will replace a vital 24-inch water main on Farrington Highway between Black Rock and Aliinui Drive. Since this phase is in a non-residential area, work will be done at night between 7 p.m. and 3:30 a.m., Sunday to Thursday รข€“ to help minimize the traffic impact on Leeward Coast residents. When excavation work begins at Black Rock, the farthest makai bound lane of traffic will be closed. The waterline eventually crosses over to the mauka side of the road so traffic patterns will change. This phase of the project is expected to take about 15 months to complete.

Please continue to visit and click on the Farrington Highway projects icon or call 748-5310 to hear a voice recording with the weekly updated project and traffic pattern information. Questions and comments can also be sent to or to the BWS Construction Section at 748-5730.
