Release Date: 8/26/2019
HONOLULU, Aug. 26, 2019 – Hawaiian Electric crews and contractors will be installing two utility poles and working on overhead power lines at Heeia Stream Bridge, requiring the overnight closure of Kamehameha Highway at the bridge through most of September.
The work will be done Sundays through Thursdays from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m., Sept. 3-27. During the project, motorists will need to detour to Kahekili Highway.
Existing utility poles at Heeia Stream Bridge have deteriorated, so crews must install two new poles, and replace and realign overhead power lines. The planned work will help build resilience and improve service reliability to area customers.
Motorists should exercise caution when approaching and passing the work area. Message boards will be posted, traffic cones will be placed around the worksite, and special duty police officers will be onsite.
