H1 Freeway Closures — As the H1 Freeway Rehabilitation Project gets closer to completion, full freeway closures will be necessary. HDOT advises motorists of an upcoming two weeks of nighttime full H1 freeway closures in the westbound direction, from Vineyard Boulevard to Halona Street, at 8 p.m.

Closures will occur on Sunday nights through Friday mornings from today through March 28. The eastbound side of the freeway will continue to have shifting lane closures, with one lane open from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m., nightly, also on Sunday nights through Friday mornings. In addition, there will be ramp closures.

Ramp closure information will be updated daily on and through the media.

Additional full freeway closures will be scheduled in the last few months of the project for paving and restriping. When the project is completed this summer, the H1 freeway will have an additional lane in both directions that continues from Punahou Street to Likelike Highway, which will help to address traffic congestion through the corridor.

The project includes reconstruction of freeway pavement, widening of the Nuuanu Stream Bridge and Palama Separation, upgrades of lighting, glare screens, drainage improvements, resurfacing and restriping.

HDOT has scheduled these full freeway closures during a time when many schools have spring break in order to lessen the impact on the driving public. Drivers are advised to avoid the area if possible and to use alternate routes.
