The State Department of Transportation (DOT) announced on Friday afternoon that a major road project will start next week, that'll affect thousands of drivers in Windward Oahu.
The work will be done on Kaneohe Bay Drive, from Kamehameha Highway to Nanamoana Street.
It's a two-mile stretch of road used by approximately 20,000 cars every day.
The project will include resurfacing, roadway reconstruction, shoulder widening, utility maintenance and installations of guardrails, pavement marking and signage.
"I'm pretty happy they're going to finally pave the road and make it nice again," Kaneohe resident Willie Ajala said.
The DOT said in a press release: "Construction will begin with single lane closures in both directions on Tuesday, October 22, through Friday, October 25, from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., daily. Work will be scheduled weekly on Mondays through Fridays at those hours."
"I don't see why they just don't do the job at night when there is no traffic," Kaneohe resident Godfrey Ortiz Jr. said.
A DOT spokesman says they can't do that because there are many homes in the area.
"I'd put up with the noise at night for no traffic," Ortiz said.
The DOT expects the $4.2 million state-funded project to be finished by August 2014.
About 40 students got sick and 25 of them, along with two adults, were taken to the hospital. Officials are now taking a look at what they ate for lunch.
It may be the season of giving, but unlike years past, the giving spirit is in short supply this year. The Salvation Army says donations at its Red Kettles are down by nearly one-third and it's not alone.
