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 9/1/17:

A contract modification was recently executed adjusting the contract completion date from August 27, 2017 to September 16, 2017; an increase of 20 calendar days. Contract changes were made to address precautionary measures necessary for containment, treatment and placement of cleared timber affected with the Rapid Ohia Death fungus; additional work on drainage features; and, additional work necessary to fulfill the terms of the land acquisition for the project.

At this time, and with consideration of the changes, the project is anticipated to be completed within the planned budget.

A dedication of the project is planned to occur in early October.


Update 8/1/17:

Operations within the existing alignment (mile markers 8.5 and 11.5):

  • Permanent traffic control including: Layout and installation of rumble strips, thermoplastic pavement markings, and signs
  • Asphalt paving: Top lift at Old Saddle Road connector (mile marker 8.5)

Operations within the new alignment (mile markers 5.5 – 8.5):

  • Excavation and embankment construction: Puainako Connector tie-in
  • Riprap ditches and sediment basins
  • Placement of mulch on ash slopes
  • Installation of waterlines at Country Club Dr.
  • Finish grading and aggregate base
  • Asphalt paving
  • Stone masonry headwalls at access road culverts

Saddle Road Safety Improvements (mile marker 11.5 – Mamalahoa Highway):

  • Installation of centerline rumble strip and new thermoplastic striping
Traffic Management:

As construction operations take place between mile marker 8.5 – 11.5 and the Puainako tie-in (mile marker 5.5 – 6.5), RHB may require single-lane, one-way travel. 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. FHWA will coordinate temporary traffic control measures for the centerline rumble strip operation (mile marker 11.5 – Mamalahoa Highway) prior to commencement of the work.


Update 7/1/17:

Operations within the existing alignment (mile markers 8.5 and 11.5) consist of permanent traffic control measures including: layout and installation of rumble strips, thermoplastic pavement markings, and signs.

Operations within the new alignment (mile markers 5.5 – 8.5) include: excavation and embankment construction, ash platforms, concrete headwalls/wingwalls for culverts, riprap ditches and sediment basins, placement of mulch, placement of aggregate base, and installation of waterlines at Pulima Dr.

The current contract completion date is scheduled for August 27, 2017.

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 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.
