Commuters driving into town from West and Central Oahu will not be able to use the Zipper Lane today due to technical difficulties.
The state Department of Transportation announced in a tweet at 5:07 a.m. today that the Zipper Lane would not be opening. Also remaining closed is the Nimitz contraflow lane, which is connected to the Zipper Lane.
The DOT explained in a follow-up tweet that due to a “software issue” this morning, it was decided to halt the opening of the Zipper Lane out of an abundance of caution.
No significant impact is anticipated due to lighter-than-normal morning peak traffic.
