Traffic Report


Convoy Advisory — Yesterday, the 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 25th Infantry Division, began a series of convoys on Kamehameha Highway from Schofield Barracks to the Kahuku Training Area. The Army coordinated this effort with HDOT. About 140 military vehicles of varying sizes departed in groups of 10-20 at staggered intervals as a safe-driving precaution. Convoys will continue 5-8 a.m. and 4-6 p.m. until Jan. 17.


Thunder — Artillery training that began Wednesday continues intermittently until Jan. 29. Atmospheric conditions may magnify noise and vibrations.


Hawaii-State-SealThe Auto Limits — The public may now apply for a limited purpose instruction permit, a limited purpose provisional driver’s license or a limited purpose driver’s license. A limited purpose credential does not require documentary proof of legal presence and/or proof of a social security number. The term “legal presence” is defined as a person who is either a U.S. citizen or is legally authorized to be in the U.S.

The limited purpose instruction permit, limited purpose provisional driver’s license and limited purpose driver’s license are issued as a license to operate a motor vehicle on public highways.

Limited purpose credentials are not real ID compliant and therefore, not exclusively accepted to board aircraft or enter federal facilities, not accepted for official federal purposes and don’t establish eligibility for employment, voter registration or public benefits.

When applying for a limited purpose instruction permit, limited purpose provisional driver’s license or limited purpose driver’s license, the applicant must provide the required documents verifying their legal name, date of birth and principal residence within the state of Hawaii.

Modified Flow — There are intermittent road closures near Fort Shafter’s Bldg. 127 (at Kubo Street) for the installation of a new water main line. Construction will be weekdays (excluding holidays), 7 a.m.-5:30 p.m., until Feb.19. Construction will occupy Kubo near the intersection of Richardson Street.


Lyman/Flagler — Roadwork continues at the Schofield intersection of Lyman and Flagler in order to widen Lyman Road, add a dedicated left turn lane and add traffic and pedestrian signals. Construction is phased, so road widening will be performed first, providing an additional lane.

Cadet Sheridan — Phase I of III that began Jan. 6 will have the southbound traffic on Schofield’s Cadet Sheridan Road routed around the construction area, weekdays, 9:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m., using the center median as a lane. Upcoming phases will be noted in News Briefs. Work will be performed until Feb. 29.


Phase III Flow — Traffic is restricted access on Schofield’s Trimble Road until Jan. 15, for the third phase of a project for utility installation and sidewalk upgrade. Traffic control will coordinate traffic.
