Construction Update

Curbs and gravel installed outside the Daniel K. Akaka VA Clinic. The clinic is approximately 85% complete.

The 90,000-square-foot Daniel Kahikina Akaka Department of Veterans Affairs Community-Based Outpatient Clinic is set to open next year, when it will begin serving over 87,000 veterans and their families in Hawaiʻi and across the Pacific. Crews are making significant progress inside, installing lighting, cabinetry, flooring and finishes. The facility is approximately 85% complete. Outside the clinic, the team is busy installing curbs, light fixture bases and gravel for the clinic’s large parking lot. It will have over 500 stalls once it is paved and striped, including 19 EV charging stations. The roads that run adjacent to the clinic – Franklin D. Roosevelt Avenue and the Kamokila Boulevard Extension – are more green with grass and trees along the medians. Those roadways, along with Boxer Road, are scheduled to open no sooner than September 2023. Copahee Avenue, which runs along Barbers Point Elementary School, will remain closed through late 2023, while Hunt awaits government approvals. Work continues on new traffic signals being installed at the intersection of Wākea Street and Kapolei Parkway, near Kapolei Lofts. The area will remain open as work is completed.
