HONOLULU, July 13, 2017 - Contractors for Hawaiian Electric Company will start to deliver six 159-ton generators, one per day, on Friday, July 14, to the Schofield Barracks Generating Station, located on U.S. Army land off Kunia Road in Wahiawa.

The delivery route for the large generators begins at Kalaeloa Barbers Point Harbor, travels through Kapolei to Fort Weaver Road, briefly goes onto the H-1 Freeway, then heads north on Kunia Road to Schofield Barracks.

Because each generator is an over-sized load, the hauling vehicles, accompanied by Honolulu Police Department escort vehicles, will take a route that avoids overpasses. The convoy will need to make a U-turn on Fort Weaver Road and on H-1, which will require brief traffic stoppages of under 30 minutes.

The generator deliveries will occur late at night and into the early morning hours to minimize the impact on traffic. The hauling vehicles, traveling at about 5 mph, will depart Barbers Point Harbor each evening around 10 p.m. and will arrive at Schofield Barracks by 5 a.m.

At night, the hauling vehicles will leave Schofield Barracks for the return trip to Barbers Point Harbor. The vehicles, traveling about 10 mph, will take a direct route, requiring no traffic stoppage, southbound on Kunia Road to Farrington Highway, then westbound through Kapolei to Kalaeloa Boulevard and south to Barbers Point Harbor.

The deliveries will follow this schedule from July 14 through 16 and July 18 through 20, and may include July 21, a contingent delivery night. Traffic control measures, aided by special-duty police officers, will be used to help control traffic on the delivery route only.
