Expect night road closures during soil sampling for rail

Special Report: Rail Transit

Advertiser Staff

City rail transit contractor Kiewit Pacific will conduct nighttime soil sampling from East Kapolei to Waipahu beginning May 25.

The work is being done as part of the preliminary design for the first portion of the rail route, to run 6.5 miles between East Kapolei and Pearl City.

Soil sampling work in residential areas will be done at night primarily along the Farrington Highway median between Waipahu High School and Fort Weaver Road. Night work along Farrington Highway will run from May 27 until early September.

Work will require some nighttime lane and intersection closures Sundays through Fridays between 7 p.m. and 6 a.m. westbound and 6 p.m. through 5 a.m. eastbound. One lane of traffic in each direction along Farrington Highway will remain open during the night work.
