Sign replacement project underway at the Daniel K. Inouye International Airport
Lane closures will be in effect to complete the work
HONOLULU – The Hawaii Department of Transportation (HDOT) Airports Division’s sign replacement project at the Daniel K. Inouye International Airport (HNL) that began last year has now reached a phase where full lane closures will occur. These lane closures will affect access to the airport.
The public is advised of a full lane closure to remove an existing overhead sign structure located on Aolele Street scheduled for the early morning hours of February 8, 2018 from 1:30 a.m. – 4:30 a.m. (Wednesday going into Thursday). The ground level ramp to the second level departure area will be inaccessible from Aolele Street and Rodgers Boulevard. Motorists will only be able to access the second level departure areas from both the eastbound and westbound freeway offramps.
The same full lane closure is also scheduled for the early morning hours of February 22, 2018 from 1:30 a.m. – 4:30 a.m. (Wednesday going into Thursday) to install the new structure.
Message boards will be placed throughout the area to alert motorists of the lane closure and detour. Passengers are advised to allow extra time if traveling during the closure time periods.
The entire project will replace approximately 3,100 signs, both indoor and outdoor, along the roadways and within the terminals and parking structures. Work includes the removal, retrofit or replacement of overhead roadway sign structures, installation of ground mounted roadway signs and supports, installation of signs and supports in the parking structures and terminals. Electrical work, traffic control, ceiling patching, and other associated improvements are also included. The overall project is anticipated to be finished in summer 2019.
