Kilauea roadwork winds down
Driving to downtown Hilo should soon get less frustrating as repaving work on Kilauea Avenue nears its end.
Yamada & Sons crews were applying the final layer of asphalt Wednesday, making it possible for the work to end today weather permitting, said Noelani Whittington, county Department of Public Works spokeswoman.
“That’s the game plan,” she said.
“What we’re hopeful of, weather permitting, is they can complete the final asphalt layer between Pauahi and Aupuni.”
The $1.5 million project that extends to Ponahawai Street began Jan. 2.
Less disruptive work, such as striping, will occur after paving is done.
The project also includes improved drainage and a pedestrian crossing light near Kukuau Street.
