Oahu drivers, get ready for a full closure of the Likelike Highway for nightly pavement preservation. All Kaneohe-bound lanes between Nalanieha Street and Kahekili Highway will be closed at night through the morning of Wednesday, Oct. 27, and all Honolulu-bound lanes will see nightly closures Wednesday through Friday, Oct. 29. Officials advise using the Pali or H-3 as alternate routes.

On the H-1, the airport offramp heading east at exit 16 will be closed so crews can work on the Rail. This closure will be from 8 p.m. to 4 a.m., Monday, Oct. 25, through Friday.

Kamehameha Highway will be down to just one lane in both directions between Middle and Laumaka streets, also for the Rail. This is a 24/7 closure and left turns from the Highway will not be allowed.

Niu Valley residents and those coming from Hawaii Kai should look out for a two-way, alternating lane closure on Kalanianaole Highway. It will be between Moomuku Place and Hawaii Loa Street for sewer repairs, Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

Switching to Kauai, a detour will be set up on Monday to address heavy traffic on Kuhio Highway. This is between North and South Koolau roads — northbound drivers will be directed to Koolau Road from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. through Friday. Southbound traffic will not be affected and residents in the area will still be able to use Koolau Road.

Maui residents, there will be a two-lane closure in both directions on Haleakala Highway this week for joint repair work. It is scheduled between Haliimaile and Makani roads from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
