KAPAA — Improvements to three Eastside collector roads including Hauaala, Mailihuna and Olohēna will be made starting next week.
Work hours are Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Portions of the roadways will be reconstructed and resurfaced, and ancillary work will also be done including improvements to the shoulders, road striping, as well as the installation of traffic signs and pavement markings.
The $2.5 million project is being funded through an 80/20 matching grant from the Federal Highways Administration with FHWA providing $2 million and the county’s share being $500,000.
Where potholes or severe cracking from structural failure is occurring, the foundation will be rebuilt with asphalt treated base.
In other areas, the cold plane process will be used to strip old layers of asphalt prior to the placement of new asphalt, which will prevent the road course from rising and the shoulders from becoming uneven. Additionally, severely eroded shoulders will be backfilled to meet the roadway elevation.
