Airdrome Closures — One-lane road closures from the sewage treatment plant to the flight simulator continue until the end of August on Wheeler’s Airdrome Road. The extension of this traffic control plan is due to revisions for continued discovery of unforeseen underground site conditions between the sewage treatment plant and new lift station.


Kubo, continued — A segment of Shafter’s Kubo Street will be intermittently closed concurrently with Palm Circle Drive, weekdays, 7 a.m.-5:30 p.m., until Aug. 15.

Periodic roads and parking lot areas closures affected by this work are Chamberlain Road, Austin Road, Wisser Road, Pierce Street, Parks Road, Rice Street, Morton Drive, Carter Drive, Palm Circle Drive, Hyland Lane, Fort Shafter Street, roads near and around Bldgs. 223 and 252, “I” Place, Bonney Loop, Artillery Hill Road and Walker Drive. Expect slight delays while traveling in these areas and allow extra time. The installation work will require blocking off parking stalls around Bldgs 117, 118, 220 and 103 (mostly weekends). Work will continue, weekdays, 8 a.m.-5 p.m., until the end of August.


Low Bridge & Zip Lane — Town-bound lane closures, 6:30 p.m.-3:30 a.m. on the H-1 freeway, continue due to rail construction of a second balanced cantilever over the freeway. Military vehicles must exercise caution, as the height clearance gradually decreases from the inside to the shoulder lane. Closures will last until fall.


Kolekole Flow — There is a partial road closure of Kolekole Avenue fronting the Schofield Inn for the construction of drainage improvements to the area. The westbound traffic of Kolekole will be detoured onto Trimble Road northbound until Cadet Sheridan Road, where a left turn will be taken onto Cadet Sheridan southbound until it is returned to Kolekole.

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.


Mid-morning traffic lines up Tuesday along Lyman Road entering Schofield Barracks, through the Lyman Gate. Nearby construction, along with vehicle users attempting to avoid Kolekole Road construction, has resulted in traffic delays.
