To ease traffic, work will be done Monday through Friday between 8:30 am. to 3:30 p.m. (when there will be minimal road closures) and Sunday through Friday between 6:30 p.m. and 6 a.m. (when there will be extensive road closures).

Roadways will be posted with ‘No Parking’ signs a week in advance to warn the public of the work. Residents and local traffic such as deliveries and trash collection will be allowed during construction.

A separate project, also in Downtown Honolulu, involving sections of Pali Highway, Bishop Street, King Street, Richard Street, and Punchbowl Street are also set to begin soon. Details for that project will be made at a later date.
