Shifting Lane closures in downtown Hilo

Shifting lane closures continue today between the hours of 8:15 AM to 4:00 PM as crews embed wireless systems to detect approaching vehicles and program the traffic signal to optimize traffic flow at two intersections: Kino‘ole and Ponahawai and Kīlauea Avenue and Ponahawai.  Street parking is not affected and intersections are open during the roadwork.
