The H-1 freeway will experience multiple lane closures Saturday night to accommodate work being done by crews from Hawaiian Electric.
The closures are expected between 10:00PM Saturday night 3/20 through 4:00AM on Sunday morning 3/21 near the Sears Distribution Center to the Waiau power plant.
To protect workers, four westbound lanes on the right side of the freeway are expected to be closed, in addition to at least 3 eastbound lanes. For a short period of time, all traffic in both directions will have to be stopped while new transmission lines are transferred from one side of the freeway to the other.
Motorists are encouraged to use alternate routes and avoid freeway travel on the H-1 while this work is completed overnight.
