The recent opening of a contra-flow lane on Farrington Highway in Nanakuli is generating a mixed response: Some area residents are pleased that it eases the westbound afternoon commute, while others are frustrated and concerned about eastbound traffic congestion.

The contra-flow lane, which stretches from Piliokahi Avenue to near Nanaikeola Street, was put in place more than a month ago to ease a traffic bottleneck through the 1.5-mile corridor.

The state Department of Transportation is repurposing one eastbound lane on the four-lane highway to allow for three Waianae-bound lanes and one town-bound lane during the afternoon rush hour.

Eastbound Nanakuli Contraflow Drivers: Update 

Some good news for eastbound drivers…the eastbound contraflow lane closure is temporary and will most likely end in late 2017. By that time, a 1.2 mile continuous 5th lane should be complete in Nanakuli, which will serve as a turning lane in the morning. The hope is to secure funding to turn the 5th lane into a contraflow lane in the afternoon. This will hopefully help to alleviate both eastbound and westbound traffic during peak hours.
Furthermore, DOT is conducting a study of the feasibility of extending the 5th lane to Hakimo Road:
