Kaimuki road repairs

City council members Ann Kobayashi and Stanley Chang announced Thursday that the city is starting road work in Kaimuki, including along Waialae Avenue.

The work is expected to be completed in December 2013 at an estimated cost of $9.3 million.

"In the past two years, the council increased the budget to fix our roads from $45 million to $100 million," said Kobayashi.  "These funds are going far to rehabilitate our most heavily traveled streets, such as Waialae Avenue."

Road work began last month and it also includes driveway and bus pad reconstruction; adjustment of utility manholes, boxes, covers and street survey monuments; catch basin reconstruction; and installation of a grade adjustment curb.

"These repairs are long overdue and we wanted to let the residents of Kaimuki and those coming form other neighborhoods of the roadwork that will be occurring in the coming year, which is going to affect a number of commuters," said Chang.

As of this writing, road work will take place at night from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m., Sunday through Friday.  All other work activities will occur during the normal work hours from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

The following is a list of the streets included in this project:
