Right turns to Aolele Street from HNL temporarily closed overnight beginning Nov. 20, 2019
HONOLULU – The Hawaii Department of Transportation Airports Division alerts the public of a temporary lane closure on Aolele Street at the Daniel K. Inouye International Airport (HNL) for construction activities on the new Mauka Concourse project. Right turns will be restricted from the airport to Aolele Street northbound towards Nimitz Highway, near the US Post Office, during overnight construction hours from 7:30 p.m. to 5:30 a.m., Monday nights through Saturday mornings beginning November 20 through mid-March 2020, weather permitting. The lane closure start time will be adjusted to 8:30 p.m. during the holiday season from December 1-26.
During the lane closure, access to the US Post Office will be accessible on Aolele Street from Nimitz Highway only. Traffic will be contraflowed on Aolele Street during work hours and drivers will need to follow the instructions of flaggers through the area. Signs will also be placed throughout the area to alert drivers of the construction detours.
The work includes trench excavation, installation of new manholes, conduits, and paving. During non-work hours the roadway will be reopened and accessible for the public with steel plates covering the trenches in the roadway.
Airport operations will not be impacted and access to HNL Terminals 1, 2 and 3, parking structures, rental car facilities and lei stands will all remain open and uninterrupted. HDOT has coordinated with the US Postal Service, HART contractors, airlines and the airport community.

The new Mauka Concourse will be located on the Ewa side of the airport and will connect with Terminal 1 (the former Interisland Terminal). The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver Certified facility will accommodate eleven narrow body aircraft or six wide body aircraft. The second level departure area will include a new air-conditioned Transportation Security Administration (TSA) checkpoint with six lanes to screen passengers faster and reduce the amount of time spent in security lines. Construction on the Mauka Concourse modernization project began June 1, 2018.
