Traffic Update: Fort Weaver Road Overpass Overnight Closures
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 only in the southbound direction for the rest of the workweek.
The overnight lane closures are meant to allow crews to safely build the elevated rail guideway over the vehicular overpass at the intersection of Fort Weaver Road and Farrington Highway. Only the southbound direction of the overpass will be closed tonight and Wednesday evening 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 below).
There will be no night work or lane closures along the Fort Weaver Road overpass on Thursday, July 2, and Friday, July 3, in observance of the Independence Day holiday on Friday.
Overnight closures in the northbound direction of the overpass will resume Sunday, July 5, between 8 p.m. and 3 a.m. the following morning, when crews next week begin guideway work in that direction. 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.
The work and related lane closures are expected to run until July 10. 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.
