Tree Trimming Along Farrington Highway: May 10 – 13

Senator Shimabukuro received the following notice from Hawaiian Electric (HECO) regarding tree trimming and lane closures on Farrington Highway:

Aloha Senator Shimabukuro,

I wanted to inform you that our Vegetation Management area will be resuming its planned tree trimming work on Farrington Highway near Honokai Hale beginning on next week Tuesday, May 10 to Friday, May 13.  This is a continuation of the work that was performed last month.

The DOT stopped the previous job early on Friday, April 22 and requested that the remainder of the work be rescheduled to May.  The crews were only allowed to work near the Nanakuli side of Farrington the last time.

Work will begin on the mauka side of Farrington Highway near Honokai Hale, and the crew will be moving in the westbound direction. For the safety of the work crew and the public, one westbound lane of Farrington Highway will be closed near the work area while the crew clears the vegetation.

Traffic control measures, aided by special-duty police officers, will be used to help direct traffic flow on Farrington Highway.  Working hours will be 8:30 a.m. until 2:30 p.m., but similar to last month, the officer will be given the authority to stop the job at any time.

I will provide you with an early copy of the traffic advisory before it is issued to the media on Monday.  Thank you for your help with sharing this information.  We apologize for the inconvenience associated with this work.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Hope you have a great weekend and mahalo for your continued patience,
