The Hawai´i County Traffic Division will be retiming and coordinating traffic signals in the North Kona area beginning Sept. 28 in an effort to ease roadway congestion, particularly during peak usage hours.

As a result, there will be three different plans created for traffic patterns: one for the morning from 6 am to 9 am, one for the mid-day period from 9 am to 2:30 pm, and one for the afternoon and early evening hours of 2:30 pm to 6:30 pm.
