Construction work at the intersection of Henry Street and Alahou Street in Kailua-Kona is scheduled to begin on Monday, according to the Hawai’i County Department of Public Works.

The county’s contractor, T&T Electric, Inc., will begin the work at 6 a.m. and continue through 2:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Motorists using area roadways should expect delays and use alternate routes if possible.

The project will include trenching work which will allow for underground duct lines. Wireless vehicle detection sensors will also be placed in the roadway on all four approaches. Other improvements are also slated in anticipation of the upcoming installation of traffic signals.

One approach will be worked on at a time, and the intersection will remain open.
