Local community groups can make their voices heard through Awareness Powered by Volta

HONOLULUwww.VoltaCharging.com – Volta Industries (Volta) today announced the return of its corporate giving program, Awareness Powered by Volta, a community service outreach program specifically designed to help non-profit and community groups with building awareness by providing them free advertising space worth thousands of dollars on Volta’s electric vehicle (EV) charging station kiosks.

“We had a great response to the contest last year, and were able to provide both HUGS and Blue Planet with free ad space,” said Arden Penton, Director of Media and Operations.  “In fact, we ended up extending their free space from three months to eight months, for a total value of $25,000 in free ads. We want to help more community-based groups again this year, so we decided to run the contest again.”

DOT H-1 Rehabilitation Project to begin in September

DOT H-1 Rehabilitation Project to begin in September

Beginning in September, the State Department of Transportation will begin a year-long H-1 Freeway Rehabilitation Project. The work will be done during nighttime hours from 8 p.m. to 4 a.m. (Sunday nights through Friday mornings) and will span from the Middle Street overpass until Ward Avenue.

The project will include resurfacing lanes, upgrading lighting, improving drainage and adding an additional lane - similar to work done on the H-1 Freeway between the Punahou Street overpass and the Pali Highway off-ramp. The DOT says that up to 120 nights of full-lane closures in one direction at a time will be necessary.

"Having four lanes now – adding one lane in each direction – is going to help,” DOT Deputy Director – Projects Jadine Urasaki said. “It’s not going to resolve all of our traffic nightmares but it is going to try and help the quality of life in getting us to and from work.”
