HONOLULU (KHON2) — All lanes of Kamehameha Highway in both directions between Middle Street and Laumaka Street will be closed nightly from Sunday, April 24 to Thursday, June 30 overnight from 8 p.m. to 4 a.m.

The reason the highway will be closed is because HART contractors Shimmick/Traylor/Granite Joint-Venture will be working on the overhead rail guideway for the Airport Guideway and stations.

Pedestrians will have detours too.

There will be access to the local businesses.

“We are actively building a rail station there in the Middle Street Transit Center and the work kind of extends out over the highway over there,” said Joey Manahan, HART government relations and community involvement. “The guideway work and so we will be completing some of that work and in order for us to do that we’re gonna have to have some road closures.”
