The state Department of Accounting and General Services advises Oahu motorists that it continues to remove a large earpod tree located in the small park bounded by Keeaumoku, South King and Young Streets.
The tree, which has been designated an exceptional tree by the City and County of Honolulu, is being removed based on the findings of two certified arborists who have determined that the tree poses a potential hazard to the public due to extensive internal decay.
The work, which started on Wednesday, Nov. 20, and scheduled to be completed on Tuesday, Nov. 26, has been extended by one day.
The project is now scheduled to be completed by Wednesday, Nov. 27 and will result in the closure of a portion of Keeaumoku Street between South King Street and Young Street from approximately 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. daily.
Motorists are advised to drive with caution, observe and obey all traffic controls, anticipate delays, and consider alternate routes.
