Construction on a traffic signal at a major intersection of the new Ane Keohokalole Highway in Kona will get underway on Monday.

The traffic light will replace a four-way stop at the intersection of the highway and Kealakehe Parkway, said Noelani Whittington, spokeswoman for the county Department of Public Works.

During construction, one-lane closures will be in effect from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on weekdays.

The $1 million project is expected to be completed in mid-September.
