20 / Monday
Waipahu — Pruning of a 65-foot tall Monkeypod tree will require the complete closure of a portion of Waipahu Street starting March 27. The pruning is scheduled to begin Monday, March 20, and will be conducted from 8:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. It is estimated that crews will require the closure for two to three days.
Beginning March 20, also, electronic message boards will be posted notifying motorists of the closure and detour routes.
There is a stop for TheBus Route #81 located within the closed area, but that schedule will not be impacted because of the express route timing.
The Monkeypod tree fronting 94-1053 Waipahu Street is in need of extensive pruning, requiring the use of a crane, refuse trucks, chippers and other heavy machinery. The complete road closure ensures the safety of the crews and public while enabling work to be executed at a much quicker pace.
The tree pruning work was scheduled to coincide with the Department of Education’s Spring Break in an effort to minimize disruption to traffic.
