Fostering Innovation Interstate Route H-1 Viaduct Improvements

4. Conclusions

4.1. Next Steps

Now that the workshop is complete, HDOT is evaluating the recommendations to determine which ideas are applicable to the Interstate Route H-1, Pearl City, Waimalu and Airport Viaduct Deck Improvements project. Based on the innovations discussed during the workshop, the agency is discussing a number of issues in depth, including the following:

  • Using incentives to speed up construction.
  • Constructing a temporary bridge over the top.
  • Removing the median barrier to provide for more lanes of traffic.
  • Approaching this as one project with multiple phases.
  • Branding the project.
  • Communicating and coordinating.

As for ACTT's impact on the project, HDOT State Bridge Engineer Paul Santo summed it up well at the conclusion of the workshop: "You've made me a believer, and I think the ideas are all good. Some of the ideas we've known about before but never implemented. Others are new to us."

Once again, ACTT has proven to be a valuable tool in project planning, innovation and success.
