HONOLULU (KHON2) — The Hawai’i Department of Transportation is notifying motorists that the H-1 Freeway eastbound will fully close for a resurfacing project.

The closure will take place between the Punahou Street offramp and the Kapi’olani interchange. Work was originally scheduled to begin on Wednesday, Feb. 1 but it was pushed back to Monday, Feb. 6 due to weather conditions.

The closure is expected to run through April.

This closure will be Monday through Friday from 8:30 p.m. to 4:30 a.m. and will include President’s Day, Feb. 20.

Construction crews will be working on resurfacing the freeway starting at Punahou Street and ending near University Avenue.

HDOT said that “during closure hours, motorists will be detoured to the Punahou Street offramp [Exit 23], where they may continue south on Punahou Street, turn left onto South King Street, and re-enter the eastbound H-1 Freeway via the South King Street onramp.
