Schools are back in session and of course this means more traffic on the H1, so please plan ahead. The good news is that the state Department of Transportation has made a few low-cost improvements to relieve some of the congestion. As you’ll notice for eastbound morning commuters, the Zipper Lane has expanded to two lanes and is now open until 9am instead of 8:30am. Also, we can now use the shoulder lane on the eastbound H1 from Kualaka’i Parkway to Kunia Road. A special mahalo shout-out to DOT Director, Ford Fuchigami for his efforts to help Westside commuters. Why not drop him a line and say mahalo too. Send your email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
And as always, please feel free to contact me at 586-6830 or email email@example.com if I can help you or your family in any way. You can also follow me on Twitter @senmikegabbard, Instagram @sengabbard, or Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/senmikegabbard.
