Lane closures are planned to be in place on Farrington Highway between Ala Walua street and Maiuu road to make changes to raised pedestrian crosswalks.

The closures were planned by the Hawaii Department of Transportation.

Work to modify the raised crosswalks will begin nightly between 9 p.m. and 4 a.m. Monday, Nov. 18 through Friday, Nov. 22, 2019. Lanes will be closed in each direction on Farrington Highway between Ala Walua Street and Maiuu Road to facilitate the roadwork. One lane in each direction will remain open at all times. All work is weather permitting.

The modification work will involve regrading of the ramps leading to the raised crosswalks at Farrington Highway’s intersections with Ala Walua Street, the Waianae High School exit, Alawa Place, and Maiuu Road.

After the regrading, the ramps (or slopes) leading up to the raised crosswalks will be different lengths, but they will provide a consistent slope.

The adjustments are being made based on community feedback.
