HI SR 200(3) SADDLE ROAD EAST SIDE

Project Overview

The Central Federal Lands Highway Division of the Federal Highway Administration in cooperation with the Hawaii Department of Transportation is developing a project to reconstruct the 5.7 mile section of the Daniel K. Inouye Highway (formerly Saddle Road) between mileposts 5.3 and 11. This is the final phase to reconstruct the east side of the Saddle Road. The project will follow the existing horizontal alignment from milepost 11 to 8.5, then, diverges southward from the existing road until connecting up with the Puainako Street Extension at approximately milepost 5.3. The roadway width will be upgraded to two 12-foot travel lanes with 8-foot shoulders and also include a climbing lane for most of the length of the project.

Update 6/1/17:

Operations between mile markers 8.5 and 11.5 consist of aggregate base, asphalt paving, and shoulder/ditch reconditioning.

  • Aggregate Base – 100% of the aggregate base has been placed for this section (approx. 50% of total project quantity).
  • Asphalt Paving – Approximately 9,500 tons of asphalt have been placed to date. This is approximately 60% of the quantity for the bottom lift (3”) within this section. It is estimated that the bottom lift of asphalt will be completed by the 1st week of May.

Operations within the new alignment (mile markers 5.5 – 8.5) include embankment construction, ash platforms, precast concrete box culverts, concrete headwalls/wingwalls for culverts, riprap ditches and sediment basins, and rock crushing.

  • Precast Concrete Box Culverts – All box culverts have been placed.

Traffic Management:

No changes. As construction operations take place between mile marker 8.5 – 11.5, work may require single-lane, one-way travel in areas where the operation abuts the traveled way. Delays up to 15 minutes may be instituted from 6:00am – 6:00pm. A pilot car will be utilized in instances where operations span multiple work zones or as conditions require to meet safety needs. Weekend/holiday grading operations may be required to improve conditions of unpaved diversions.


Update 5/1/17:

Operations between mile markers 8.5 and 11.5 consist of primarily of subgrade preparation, finish grading, and asphalt paving. Operations within the new alignment (mile markers 5.5 – 8.5) include embankment construction, ash platforms, precast concrete box culverts, concrete headwalls/wingwalls for culverts, and rock crushing.

Update 4/1/17:
Operations between mile markers 8.5 and 11.5 consist of excavation, subgrade finishing (slope and roadway), riprap ditches, and linear grading (maintenance of unpaved diversions). Operations within the new alignment (mile markers 5.5 – 8.5) include embankment construction, ash platforms, precast concrete box culverts, concrete headwalls/wingwalls for culverts, and rock crushing.

The asphalt hot plant air quality permit was received from the Hawaii Department of Health, Clean Air Branch on Friday February 24, 2017. FHWA has completed verification testing for both asphalt mix designs that were submitted (Marshall and Superpave); Paving of the top 2 miles MP 11.5-8.5 is anticipated to begin late March / early April.


Comments None at this time.
Construction Amount More than $25,000,000
