Traffic Advisory: Section of Fort Weaver Road Overpass to Close Overnight for Two Weeks
The Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation wants to inform drivers that the Fort Weaver Road/Kunia Road overpass near Waipahu and Ewa will be closed overnight for two weeks for rail construction beginning Sunday evening, June 28.
The overnight lane closures, to run Sundays through Thursdays, will allow crews to safely build the elevated rail guideway over the vehicular overpass at the intersection of Fort Weaver Road and Farrington Highway. The work and related lane closures are expected to run two weeks from June 28 to July 10. The schedule is as follows:
- The southbound direction of the overpass will be closed Sunday through Thursday between 9 p.m. and 4 a.m. the following morning. Southbound drivers will be detoured onto Old Farrington Highway via the Ewa off-ramp and back onto Fort Weaver Road (see related locator map on next page).
- The northbound direction of the overpass will also be closed Sunday through Thursday between 8 p.m. and 3 a.m. the following morning. Northbound drivers will be detoured onto Farrington Highway via the Waipahu off-ramp. Drivers along Farrington Highway can turn left onto Leoku Street and Waipahu Street to re-enter Fort Weaver Road heading northbound.
Directional signs will be placed along the route to help drivers navigate the detour.
Motorists who routinely use the Fort Weaver Road/Kunia Road overpass should provide themselves extra time for their commute. HART apologizes for any inconvenience caused by the construction-related lane closures.
