Unit 64-R Beretania Street
REHABILITATION OF BERETANIA STREET – HONOLULU, HAWAII
Rehabilitation of Beretania Street, Unit 64-R is a $9.4 million dollar project with the City & County of Honolulu. The project initially consisted of reconstruction of existing asphalt / concrete roadway with a new 9 inch section of asphalt pavement.
During preparatory work, shallow undocumented utilities were found under the old asphalt / concrete roadway. RHB worked closely with the City & County of Honolulu in the redesign of the project to a 3-inch section of asphalt pavement that would avoid the shallow utilities and still provide the public with a much needed improvement to the existing roadway.
Being a main thoroughfare for the city of Honolulu, public involvement and maintaining access to homes and business along the route added to the complexity.
As a part of this project RHB also installed new concrete bus pads; repaired portions of damaged curb and gutter; installed new loop detectors at major intersections; reconstructed damaged sewer and storm drain manholes; and installed new striping and signage, including a new dedicated bike lane.
This project is anticipated to be completed by the end of 2017.
