Distracted Driving — April is National Distracted Driving Awareness Month. Motorists may take a drive in a new, state-of-the-art digital simulator system – the only one of its kind in Hawaii – 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. The simulator allows the public, especially students, to experience how dangerous it would be to operate a vehicle while being distracted.

Revised Lyman/Flagler — There are traffic modifications, weekdays, 7 a.m.-4 p.m., at Schofield’s intersection of Lyman and Flagler to widen Lyman Road, add a dedicated left turn lane, and add traffic and pedestrian signals to the intersection, until Aug. 12.

Construction will be 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.

Airdrome Road — One-lane road closures along Wheeler’s Airdrome Road from the sewage treatment plant to the flight simulator continue weekdays, 8 a.m.-3:30 p.m., until June 30.

Paumalu — HDOT is moving forward with improvements to the Paumalu Stream Bridge in order to lift weight restrictions as soon as possible. The bridge, originally constructed in 1929, last underwent reinforcement of concrete supports in November 2014, is on Kamehameha Highway, near Sunset Beach.

Damage discovered during a recent inspection prompted the weight limit to be reduced from 25 to 15 tons. A temporary structure beneath the bridge will take the load off the columns and help support the bridge. The work is anticipated to be finished in two months, weather permitting.

Krukowski — Tripler’s Jarrett-White Road is currently open to the public and access from Jarrett-White Road down Krukowski Road is available (up to unit 1114). However, Krukowski north of the Fisher House will still be closed until April 29. The original plan was for construction to be completed last fall.
