HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Drivers beware: the full closure of the eastbound H-1 Freeway from the Punahou Street off-ramp (Exit 23) to the Kapiolani Interchange, has been pushed back to start on Monday, Feb. 6, due to weather conditions.

Roadwork will occur on Monday nights through Friday mornings, from 8:30 p.m. to 4:30 a.m., nightly.

During closure hours, motorists will be detoured to the Punahou Street offramp (Exit 23), where they may continue south on Punahou Street, turn left onto South King Street, and re-enter the eastbound H-1 Freeway via the South King Street onramp. Click here for a map of the detour route.
