BY PANOS PREVEDOUROS PHD – Quietly, quickly and effectively the Hawaii State Department of Transportation (HDOT) has added a full lane of traffic on the west-bound H-1 Freeway from Punahou Street to Pali Highway.
The fourth lane terminates smoothly as the Pali Highway off-ramp.
This lane addition is the result of many months of work at my University of Hawaii Traffic and Transportation Lab, the R. M. Towill Corporation, the Planning, Traffic and Design section of HDOT and others.
Cudos to HDOT for doing it! I look forward to the similar lane addition on the east-bound side.
