Morning Senator,
More information as noted earlier. Updates can be found on our DOT Website. Hope this helps.

Map #1 [above]: The new westbound H-1 ramps, seen here as the topmost red line, will provide an entrance from Makakilo Drive and an off-ramp to Farrington Highway, leading to Kalaeloa Boulevard and the area’s largest shopping centers. The eastbound ramps and the Wakea Street Extension are anticipated to open in August.

Map #2 [above]: Farrington Highway will be closed in both directions between the Wet-n-Wild Hawaii waterpark and Kamokila Boulevard beginning Tuesday morning, 5/17. Westbound H-1 traffic using the new freeway Exit 1E will be able to proceed west on Farrington Highway to Kalaeloa Boulevard

Will get more information- however it is due to the Kapolei Interchange partial opening of Makakilo off ramps.  We are completing the Wakea portion and needed to shutdown the Farrington Highway side by Wet ‘n’ Wild – this interim will be until August when we will open Wakea area.
