Downtown Hilo roadwork nears completion

Kelsey Walling/Tribune-Herald Cars on Wednesday head down the only open portion of Kilauea Avenue between Mamo and Ponahawai streets in Hilo. This will be the last section to undergo excavation and reconstruction for the Keawe Street Improvement Project.

Kelsey Walling/Tribune-Herald Kyle Sabate, manager of Kilauea Coffee, stands outside the business Wednesday on Kilauea Avenue in Hilo. The shop has seen a decline in business due to road closures that have been ongoing since the end of February.

Excavation and reconstruction of sections of Kilauea Avenue and Keawe Street in downtown Hilo are set to be complete at the end of next week.
