Posted on Nov 29, 2019 in Airports News, Main, News

HONOLULU – The Hawaii Department of Transportation (HDOT) Airports Division notifies the public it is replacing the existing PVC height clearance pipes with new steel bars at the Daniel K. Inouye International Airport (HNL). The bars are being replaced to help prevent damage to airport property.

Drivers either do not notice or disregard the height clearance warnings when entering airport parking structures or ground level roadways, which alerts a driver if their vehicle is too tall to enter the structure. The new steel bars will cause severe damage if it comes in contact with the vehicle.

Motorists should take precautions and know their vehicle height before attempting to enter the airport property. The clearance heights will remain the same and are listed below:

  • Terminal 2 Parking Structure: 6 feet 2 inches
  • Terminal 1 Parking Structure: 7 feet
  • International Parking Structure: 8 feet
  • Roadway clearance: 13 feet

The installation of the new height clearance bars will be conducted nightly beginning Monday, Dec. 2 through Friday, Dec. 20, 2019 from 8:30 p.m. to 5 a.m. Some entrances may not be accessible during construction. Temporary lane closures and traffic control measures will also be necessary to replace the bars over the ground level and second floor roadways.
