Work begins next week to preserve city roads in Nuuanu, Pauoa and Pacific Heights.

Starting July 6, slurry seal will be placed on 37 lane miles of city roads which have been designated as appropriate to receive this maintenance treatment.

This $1.3 million contract is scheduled to be completed by the end of the year. It includes crack sealing, curb and gutter repair, reconstruction of damaged areas, slurry sealing of the asphalt roadway, tree mitigation, adjustment of utilities to finish grade, and installation of permanent pavement markings and vehicle loop sensors.

The project work schedule will be Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Residents and businesses will be notified when their road is scheduled for slurry seal.

On-street parking will be prohibited at times with “No Parking Tow Away” signs posted a minimum of 48 hours in advance. Illegally parked vehicles will be towed at the owner’s expense.

Motorists are reminded to observe and obey all traffic controls, posted signs and special duty officers. Drivers should avoid unnecessary travel through the area or consider alternate routes when possible, otherwise anticipate delays.

The contractor for the project, Alakona Corp. is responsible for coordinating local traffic. Please call Alakona Corp. at 833-1991 or construction manager SSFM at 356-1235 with concerns.
