Traffic Advisory for Kona Motorists, Sept. 28 & 29
The Department of Public Works Traffic Division will conduct streetlight work this week in Kona between 8 a.m. and 2:30 p.m., weather permitting.
Streetlight work will begin on Wednesday, Sept. 28, along Hualālai Road from the intersection of Kuakini Highway and Hualālai Road and along Ali‘i Drive from the intersection of Hualālai Road and Ali’i Drive heading in the southern direction.
Work will continue on Thursday, Sept. 29, on Palani Road from the intersection of Hina Lani Street and Palani Road to the Palani Road and Queen Ka‘ahumanu Highway intersection.
This work is part of the Hawai‘i County public streetlight conversion program, which aims to convert streetlights from current low-pressure sodium lamps (LPS) to light-emitting diode lamps (LEDs).
Special off-duty police officers will facilitate traffic movement during intermittent lane closures. Motorists are advised to expect delays and are encouraged to use alternate routes.
The County of Hawai‘i Department of Public Works apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause and thanks members of the community for their patience and understanding
