Traffic Report


Take a Left — HDOT says that construction on a traffic improvements project between Lumiauau Street and Kamehameha Highway in Waikele, that began Monday, is anticipated to last six months, with completion in June. The project will add a dedicated left-turn lane on Lumiaina Street in the eastbound direction, turning onto the northbound lanes of Kamehameha Highway towards Mililani. Traffic signals will be modified to provide a left-turn green arrow for these lanes.

Work will be scheduled 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m, weekdays, excluding holidays. The left eastbound lane will be closed during work hours between Lumiauau Street and Kamehameha Highway, but traffic across and onto Kamehameha Highway will still be allowed.
