The Department of Facility Maintenance is set to perform temporary first aid pavement repairs to Kapi'olani Boulevard between Ward Avenue and University Avenue beginning on Tuesday, March 19.  Weather and conditions permitting, the resurfacing work is anticipated to be completed by Friday, May 10.

The work is scheduled Mondays through Fridays, from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. 

Drivers are advised to avoid the area if possible and use alternate routes while crews are working. Please allow for extra travel time and abide by posted traffic signs if travel through the area is required. Special duty police officers will be posted at the work site to assist with traffic control.

This latest project is part of the city’s broader effort to temporarily rehabilitate streets in the urban core. Mayor Kirk Caldwell’s administration says they have repaved more than 2,000 of the 3,517 lane miles under the city’s jurisdiction, the initial effort focused on neighborhood streets, and not the downtown area.

The first aid repaving work to streets in the urban core will provide relief to drivers before more comprehensive repaving projects are initiated by city contractors.  

Recently, DFM completed temporary first aid pavement repairs to South King Street between Punchbowl Street and Alapa'i Street.
