Traffic & Outages


18 / Friday

Rail Construction — Construction work between Aloha Stadium and the H-1 Interchange for the Honolulu Rail Transit Project began Tuesday and is expected to create additional traffic congestion and night-time construction noise in the Pearl Harbor area. Commuters to Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam using Halawa, Borchers and Makalapa Gates should plan accordingly as lane closures in both directions of Kamehameha Highway could delay traffic trying to turn into those gates.

For questions or comments, call the Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation (HART) 24-hour project hotline at 566-2299 or visit the website at

Bike Path — In ‘Aiea, the Pearl Harbor Bike Path will be closed for maintenance through Thursday, Aug. 31, between Lehua Avenue and Hekaha Street. In addition, nearby Neal S. Blaisdell Park will be closed during the same time period for landscaping, painting and repairs to park amenities.

Signs are now posted on the path and park advising the public of the closures. Bicyclists will be detoured onto Kamehameha Highway for the closed section of the bike path.

The closures come after Mayor Kirk Caldwell signed a grant of easement agreement between the City and County of Honolulu and the U.S. Navy on July 20 that allows the Department of Transportation Services to manage a large section of the Pearl Harbor Bike Path.

In addition to maintenance work, enforcement of the city’s Stored Property Ordinance will be performed by the Department of Facility Maintenance during the closures.

When the bike path and park are reopened on Friday, Sept. 1, the city will continue to monitor the area for Stored Property Ordinance violations and continue to enforce park closure hours from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m.


5 / Tuesday

Lauhala Road— This Wheeler Army Airfield road will have lane closures on Lauhala Road North of Sergeant Street for utility installation. The road will be restricted to one lane access from Sept. 5-19. The work will be performed in two Phases.

Phase I will occupy the east side of the Lauhala from Sept. 5-12. Phase II will occupy the west side of the road from Sept. 13-19.

During both phases, traffic on the north end of Sergeant Street needing to exit onto Lauhala must access Lauhala from the south end of Sergeant Street. Work will be performed between 7 a.m.-3:30 p.m.


Revised Traffic Codes — The Military Police has begun enforcing newly revised and approved U.S. Army-Hawaii Regulation 190-5 traffic codes that became effective Tuesday. The most significant change is the expansion of traffic offenses that incur monetary fines. Offenses such as seat belt violations, illegal parking and cell phone usage/texting while driving, now have a prescribed fine associated with the offense in addition to a potential prohibition to driving on the installation or a suspension of driving privileges on the installation.

The revised traffic codes apply to all Soldiers, civilians, family members, contractors and other personnel who work on, reside on or visit any U.S. Army installation, facility or work site in the state of Hawaii. To review the new Traffic Code in its entirety, go to the Garrison Policies tab on the U.S. Army Garrison-Hawaii website at
