Motorists traveling between east and west Hawaii on Saturday morning, July 27, 2019, are advised of possible traffic delays due to the transport of heavy equipment.

Inouye Highway to Puainako Street in Hilo, continuing along Kanoelehua Ave. to Highway 130, and then to Highway 132. Travel will be maintained in both directions on the highway.

The County of Hawai’i Department of Public Works apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause and thanks the community for their patience and understanding.
