NOTICE OF KAMEHAMEHA HIGHWAY, KAMANANUI ROAD AND WILIKINA DRIVE
REHABILITATION WEED CIRCLE TO INTERSTATE ROUTE H-2 PROJECT
The State of Hawaii Department of Transportation (HDOT) is proposing pavement reconstruction on State Route 80, Kamehameha
Highway, on the Island of Oahu. The work will occur between the intersection of Wilikina Drive and Kamananui Road. This phase of the
project is estimated to begin in September 2021 and is expected to be completed within 1 year.
The purpose of the project is to reconstruct the State Route 80 asphalt pavement to maintain existing highway infrastructure. The
extent of ground disturbance will be limited to the existing paved area. The project involves no expansion or change of use beyond that
previously existing.
The main constraint to pavement reconstruction on the State Route 80 is the ability to maintain travel lanes during peak periods and
minimize the overall disruption to the traveling public throughout the project duration. To achieve this goal, the project will require working
at night. The majority of the lane closures will have to be conducted during the overnight hours to minimize major delays that daytime
lane closures would cause. Therefore, HDOT has applied for a Community Noise Variance. HDOT and its contractors will make every effort
to minimize the times, duration, and intensity of use of equipment to minimize noise impacts to the community.
This notice is being provided in accordance with the Hawaii Administrative Rules (HAR 11-46-8). HDOT field personnel and the contractor
will monitor all equipment and construction activities on the active job site to ensure the use of appropriate noise abatement measures.
Please direct any comments or concerns regarding potential noise emissions to the HDOT Project Manager, Ms. Holly Yuen at
(808) 692-7548 or holly.yuen@hawaii.gov by July 8, 2021.
