The U.S. Army announces that soldiers from the 871st Engineer Company are scheduled to convoy from the Hilo Army Reserve Forces Center to Pōhakuloa Training Area (PTA) on Thursday and Friday, Feb. 22 and 23, 2018. Convoys begin at 10:30 a.m. on Thursday and at 8 a.m. on Friday.

The convoys are scheduled to leave PTA and return to the Hilo Army Reserve Forces Center starting at noon on Sunday, Feb. 25, 2018.

Convoys will have an hour between them to minimize civilian traffic delays. The convoys will be escorted by lead and trail vehicles with rotating amber lights and signs. Motorists are asked to be alert and drive with care around convoy vehicles.

For questions, contact U.S. Army Garrison-Pohakuloa Public Affairs Officer Eric Hamilton, via email to [email protected] or by phone to either (808) 969-2577 or (808) 824-1474.
