Hawaiian Electric Company (HECO) - Hawaii Island announces utility pole replacement work will be taking place at the Honalo Junction (Junction with Highway 11 (Kuakini Highway) and Mamalahoa Highway) on Thursday, October 15th, 2020.
HECO crews will be working from the hours of 8:00 am to 3:00 pm on October 15th, 2020. Motorists traveling in the area during those hours should expect delays and security crews will be contra-flowing traffic.
Digital signboards have been posted in all directions to advise motorists of the work planned.
HECO says the replacement work is necessary as the utility pole currently in place has been severely damaged in the past few months in several motor vehicle collisions. HECO crews had completed temporary repairs at the time, as they currently had on schedule to replace that utility pole.
