Vehicle Access into the Visitor Center to be Unaffected; Left Turn Exit onto Kamehameha Highway West to close for several months
The Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation (HART) announced that rail construction on Kamehameha Highway fronting the World War II Valor in the Pacific National Monument is expected to begin in mid-April.
Vehicle traffic entering the National Park Service site, which is home to the USS Arizona Memorial, from either direction on Kamehameha Highway will not be affected during operating hours.
For vehicles exiting the World War II Valor in the Pacific National Monument, the left turn from Arizona Memorial Place onto Kamehameha Highway West will be closed for several months to facilitate construction for the Airport Guideway and Stations segment of the Honolulu Rail Transit Project.
All traffic exiting the World War II Valor in the Pacific National Monument site will have to turn right onto Kamehameha Highway East while the construction is underway. Vehicles needing to access Kamehameha Highway West will follow a short detour route to Radford Drive and Center Drive.
Shuttle service from the World War II Valor in the Pacific National Monument site to the Battleship Missouri Memorial and the Pacific Aviation Museum on Ford Island will continue to operate as scheduled during the construction period. Guests touring the two historical museums are encouraged to arrive early for scheduled tour times to avoid traffic delays on the shuttle route.
