Notice of rehabilitation work of localized streets in Downtown/Chinatown

HONOLULU -- The Department of Design and Construction would like to notify the public of street rehabilitation work in Downtown/Chinatown, beginning Monday, March 8, 2021. The project includes the resurfacing and reconstruction of asphalt concrete pavements, construction of concrete bus pads, tree stump removals, and the installation of signs and bike lane facilities. The project also includes upgraded curb extensions at three intersections along Pauahi Street (Pauahi Street/Maunakea Street, Pauahi Street/Smith Street, and Pauahi Street/Nu‘uanu Avenue) with the installation of permeable pavers, minimal bollards and flatter corners. Work is expected to be complete in late summer 2021, weather and unforeseen conditions permitting.

To minimize traffic flow disruptions and to accommodate access, scheduled work will be done Monday through Friday, between the hours of 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., and at nights, between the hours of 6:30 p.m. to 6 a.m., Sunday through Friday.

Residents and local traffic such as deliveries and trash collection will be allowed during construction. Several Biki bike stations have been temporarily relocated because of the project. Motorists are advised to use alternate routes and exercise caution when proceeding through the project area. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience.

Rehabilitation work is also set to begin on South King Street, Bishop Street, and other areas of Downtown Honolulu, later this year. Details to that project will be announced at a later date.
