The extension of this traffic control plan is due to unforeseen conditions with existing water lines.

Williston Detour — There will be a road closure on Schofield’s Williston Avenue between Cadet Sheridan Road to Reilly Avenue. Parking lots on Williston will still be accessible. Traffic will be detoured around the construction area through Cadet Sheridan, Menoher Road and Reilly Avenue.

Where’s My Car? — Reminder, the Honolulu Vehicle Processing Center is no longer at Sand Island Access Road. It is now at Pier 1 on Forrest Street, just off Ala Moana Boulevard in the Kaka’ako area of Honolulu. Visit to track, deliver or collect your vehicle.


Sterling and Airdrome — There is an adjusted schedule for traffic flow crossing Wheeler’s Airdrome Road at the intersection of Sterling Road. Due to the recent weather conditions and unexpected construction issues, additional days have been added to this lane closure.

Airdrome will be converted from a two-way road to a one-lane contraflow around the construction area, weekdays, 8 a.m.-5 p.m. (weekend work, only if necessary.) Depending on the work, either Phase 1 or Phase 2 will be in effect until Feb. 29.

Although the work will switch between the two phases, only one phase will be in effect at a time.


Lauhala Closures — A road closure along Wheeler’s Lauhala Road in the housing area for earth and road work continues until April 30. The completion date of this traffic control plan was impacted by weather and is extended. The road detour is being performed in two phases; phase two is a detour of the south portion of Lauhala.


Trimble — Phase III out of III continues for a construction project that restricts access on Trimble Road until Feb. 15. Flaggers will coordinate traffic.


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.

The majority of the project will allow traffic to flow in both directions of Lyman and Flagler. Turns will be limited at the intersection to provide two lanes of traffic.

Work takes place weekdays, 7 a.m.-4 p.m., until March 13.
