The County of Hawai’i Department of Public Works Maintenance Division will begin work causing an alternating lane closure on Wainaku Street between Halaulani Place and Pua Lane in Hilo on Tuesday morning.

DPW officials say the work will run through Friday, May 13.

Alternating lanes will be closed between 8 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. and again from 12:30 p.m. through 2:30 p.m. on workdays.

The lane closures are necessary to complete tree trimming work in a timely manner and for the safety of the workers and the traveling public, according to DPW.

Motorists driving in the area are advised to expect delays and use alternate routes if possible.
