INTERSTATE ROUTE H-1 AND H-201 DESTINATION SIGN UPGRADE/REPLACEMENT PHASE 3
HONOULIULI, WAIAWA AND HALAWA AHUPUAA, EWA MOKU AND MOANALUA, KAPALAMA AND
KALIHI AHUPUAA, KONA MOKU, ISLAND OF OAHU
FEDERAL-AID PROJECT NO. NH-0300(144)
Notice is hereby given that the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the State of Hawaii Department of Transportation, Highways Division (HDOT) proposes to
upgrade/replace destination signs, support structures and foundations at 11 discrete locations along Interstate Route H-1 and H-201 (Moanalua Freeway) between Kunia
and Kalihi on the Island of Oahu. The individual project locations are shown in Figure 1. This project is a Capital Improvements Program project utilizing Federal funds
and addresses the third phase of sign upgrades/replacement along the H-1, H-2 and H-201 corridors. The Area of Potential Effect (APE) is approximately 9 acres. The
APE area includes the highway right-of-way between 100 and 250 feet wide and generally 200 feet along the highway on either side of the sign replacement location.
For most of the sign posts, the construction work will consist of drilled shafts, 4 to 5 feet in diameter. The shafts will be up to 60 feet deep depending on the subsurface
conditions. Rebar will be placed in the shaft and concrete poured. Around the top of the drilled shaft will be a 5- to 6- foot square pedestal. A pole or poles will be
erected to support the sign. Most of the signs will span one direction of the freeway and have supports on both sides of the freeway; other signs may be cantilevered
with a single support pole. The existing sign supports will be removed and foundations will be abandoned in place. The new signs will be similar in size to the existing
signs and will be highly reflective. There will be no sign luminaires.
Pursuant to Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, as amended (2006), Native Hawaiian Organizations and Native Hawaiian descendants with
ancestral lineal or cultural ties to, cultural knowledge or concerns for, and cultural or religious attachment to the proposed project area are requested to contact Dean
