Kahului Traffic Signal Installation at Kamehameha/Hina
By Wendy Osher
Traffic signal installation began this week at the busy Kamehameha Avenue intersection with Hina Avenue in Kahului.
The project began yesterday and continues through the end of February.
Work includes the installation of new sidewalk connections, crosswalk markings, and street name signs.
Work hours are daily from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
A public notice issued by contractor Maui Master Builders, Inc. indicates that Kamehameha Avenue will be closed to through traffic at certain times during construction.
The intersection was the site of a fatal traffic collision in March 2009.
In an effort to improve safety, a flashing stop signal had been placed at the intersection for motorists traveling along Kamehameha Avenue, who yield to oncoming right-of-way traffic from Hina Avenue.
