Closure at Waianae Ave (North) — There will be a road closure at Schofield Barracks’ Waianae Avenue (north corridor) between Generals Loop and Charlton Street. Waianae Ave (North) access at Waianae Ave (South), between Jecelin Street and Devol Street, will also be closed as part of this road closure.

Waianae Avenue (South) between Generals Loop and Devol Street will be designated for two-way traffic during this road closure. The housing units located on Charlton Street and Jecelin Street will need to use the Jecelin Street access from Waianae Ave (South) for both entry and exit.

The housing area on Jecelin Street and Charlton Street will be a dead end during this closure. Construction is anticipated 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m., until Sept. 25.




Updated Bennet Drive — There will be intermittent lane closures at Fort Shafter’s Benet Drive in the vicinity of Bldgs. 341, 405 and 441 for the installation of a new water main line. The work occupies one lane, including the parking stalls perpendicular to the lane, weekdays, 7:45 a.m.-5 p.m., until Oct. 30.

Intermittent traffic modification is required to allow for the chlorination of the new water main line, followed by the tie-in of the new water main line to the existing line at the intersection of Benet Drive and Pierce Street. The preparatory work prior to the chlorination and tie-in begins after the entire length of the water main line for Phase 2 is installed.

Phase 2 has encountered delays attributed to various differing site conditions. The preparatory work prior to the chlorination and tie-in involves excavation, installation of pipe, concrete encasement of pipe, installation and welding thrust blocks, and backfilling at the point of connection. Final tie-in and asphalt paving is anticipated later this month.


Updated Carpenter — A road closure at Carpenter Street, Schofield Barracks, was extended until Sept. 18, weekdays, 8:30 a.m.-1:45 p.m. (Wednesdays 8:30 -11:45 a.m.)
