City surpasses repaving goal in 2016

News Release from City and County of Honolulu, January 4, 2017

Honolulu – Through the combined efforts of the Department of Design and Construction and Department of Facility Maintenance, the city surpassed its repaving goal for 2016 by completing 332 lane miles throughout O‘ahu.

Under Mayor Kirk Caldwell’s aggressive repaving plan announced in January 2013, the city has repaved 1,309 lane miles of roads that were rated in less than fair condition, and is well on track to achieve the mayor’s goal of 1,500 lane miles within the five year time-frame he set four years ago. Upcoming projects this year include the repaving of N. King Street and Kalākaua and Nu‘uanu avenues in town, and across O‘ahu projects in Mākaha, Makakilo/Kapolei, Waialua and St. Louis Heights.  

“This unprecedented repaving effort has improved the daily commute of tens of thousands of Honolulu residents, while also ensuring roads that are deemed in good to satisfactory condition remain that way for years to come,” said Mayor Caldwell. “The city will continue its comprehensive repaving effort in 2017, with the goal of completing another 300 lane miles or more over the next twelve months.”

In addition to long-term road reconstruction, the city has patched more than 162,000 pot holes, crack sealed more than 835,000 linear feet of roadway, slurry sealed nearly 99 lane miles and applied seal coat to more than 55 lane miles over the past four years. Through the use of a Pavement Condition Index that has been in place since 2013, the city is able to track the state of city roads to determine which ones are in the most need of rehabilitation.

In 2015, the city’s Department of Design and Construction and the Department of Facility Maintenance repaved 271 lane miles throughout O‘ahu. In 2014, the city repaved 310 lanes miles, and in 2013, the city repaved 396 lane miles, or an average of 327 lane miles per year when the 2016 totals are included. The City and County of Honolulu has 3,517 lanes miles of roads under its jurisdiction.
