Construction Update

April 17, 2023

Work is nearing completion on new roads surrounding the future Daniel Kahikina Akaka Department of Veterans Affairs Community-Based Outpatient Clinic. The new Kamokila Boulevard Extension, new Boxer Road, and new lanes of Franklin D. Roosevelt Avenue are scheduled to open in June 2023.

Copahee Avenue will remain closed through early August 2023 while Hunt awaits guidance from the U.S. Department of Education. Barbers Point Elementary School will continue to be accessible through Tulagi Avenue. Hunt representatives continue to work with school administrators to minimize disruption to the campus.

FDR Ave.: Once complete, FDR Ave. will have 4-lanes along the entire length of the project with two lanes going in each direction. This new segment will have sidewalks on both sides of the road, which will increase walkability in the area.

Kamokila Blvd.: Kamokila Blvd. has been extended into Kalaeloa. The Kamokila extension will have travel lanes in both directions with bike lanes continuing on both sides of the roadway once improvements are complete.

Boxer Road: Boxer Road has been relocated and will include travel lanes in both directions. Once phase one of improvements is complete, a sidewalk will be added on the mauka side of the roadway.

Progress continues to be made on the Daniel Kahikina Akaka Department of Veterans Affairs Community-Based Outpatient Clinic.

Hunt announced a partnership with Xeal to install 19 EV chargers outside the clinic. The chargers will serve veterans, their families, health care professionals, and the West Oʻahu community.

Inside the building, interior walls of the state-ofthe-art VA medical facility are being installed. Once Hunt Companies completes construction, the $120 million clinic will provide specialized health care for 87,000 Hawaiʻi veterans.
