New Contraflow Schedule for Kūhiō Highway Starts July 3
The Hawai‘i Department of Transportation announced modified Saturday contraflow hours on Kūhiō Highway beginning Saturday, July 3. The new schedule will result in reduced hours on the back end, shifting from 7:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. to 7:30-11:30 a.m.
In light of recent northbound traffic congestion, HDOT placed counters on Kūhiō Highway the past two Saturdays to confirm the timing of the southbound traffic peak easing and the northbound traffic peak intensifying. The change in schedule addresses the northbound traffic issue that exists during the latter part of the contraflow timetable.
The Kūhiō Highway weekday contraflow schedule remains unchanged. Hours of operation are Monday through Friday from 4:15-11 a.m.
Traffic counts and efficiency will continue to be monitored and any future modifications to the contraflow schedule will be announced in advance.
