Pahala intersection to become all-way stop

The county will convert the intersection of Pikake and Kamani Streets in Pahala to a four-way stop.

The work, which includes enhanced striping, pavement legends and signage, is tentatively scheduled to take place Jan. 21-24 between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m., weather and construction conditions permitting.

Thee will be traffic control officers on site during the work. Motorists are advised to expect delays and are encouraged to use alternate routes.
