Exercise — The ongoing 25th Infantry Division large-scale exercise Lightning Forge continues until Feb. 9. Watch for exercise-related training noise and convoys.

Residents on Wheeler Army Airfield and the surrounding community can expect an increase in noise and installation road closures, Feb. 8, due to the scheduled landings of Air Force C-17 Globemaster III at Wheeler Army Airfield in support of Lightning Forge. Wheeler’s Airdrome and Lauhala roads will be closed temporarily during the C-17’s arrival and departure. There will be a total of eight road closures, lasting for approximately 5 to 10 minutes each, between the hours of 11 a.m. and 4 p.m.

The training is contingent on weather that could impact visibility or safe runway conditions.

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

Construction work will occupy Kubo Bldg. T-126 to the intersection of Kubo Street and Funston Road at Bldg. 12. Kubo Street and the adjacent parking lot will be restricted to contractor equipment for the duration of work in Area X.

Palm Circle Drive and Richardson Street will be accessible to the public by means of Hyland Lane.


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 roadwork 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 2 is a detour of the south portion of Lauhala.


Trimble — Phase 3 out of 3 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.
