City Traffic Cameras in Leeward Oahu Affected by Construction Incident

(Tuesday, Oct. 18, 2011) – A Kiewit Infrastructure West Co. subcontractor’s construction vehicle working on Honolulu’s rail transit project struck an overhead communications line near Aloha Stadium today, affecting the city’s traffic camera coverage.

Cameras covering the Central and Leeward Oahu area are out of service due to the incident, and crews are expected to work through the night to make the necessary repairs, HART officials said.

“We understand that many commuters rely on these cameras for their traffic updates, and we are working diligently to get the needed repairs done as quickly as possible,” said Kevin Rozendaal, a project manager for Kiewit. “We are sorry for any problems this may cause.”

A vehicle used to locate utilities struck the overhead line on Kamehameha Highway and Honomanu Street, cutting the fiber optics cable and disabling the cameras, Kiewit officials said.

Kiewit notified the City and inspectors were sent out to inspect the damage and to consult on a repair strategy. No injuries were reported.
