Road Alerts



The Department of Public Works, Traffic division will be conducting streetlight work on Wednesday, September 28th along Hualālai Rd. from the intersection of Kuakini Hwy. and Hualālai Rd. and then along Ali’i Dr. from the intersection of Hualālai Rd. and Ali’i Dr. heading in the southern direction.  Streetlight work will continue on Thursday, September 29th on Palani Rd. from the intersection of Hina Lani St. and Palani Rd., to the Palani Rd. and Queen Ka‘ahumanu Hwy. intersection.  Work for both days is scheduled between the hours of 8:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., weather conditions permitting.

This work is part of the County public streetlight conversion program.  The program converts streetlights from current low-pressure sodium lamps, or LPS, to light-emitting diode lamps or LED.

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 the community for their patience and understanding.

If there are any questions or concerns, please call Barett Otani, Information and Education Specialist, at 961-8787.
