(Hilo, HI) – Hawaii Electric Light Company announces utility work in the Kilohana Subdivision of Kona to replace underground cables. Work will continue for approximately 5-6 months. Work hours are from 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday and may vary.

Work begins at the Lako Street intersection, proceeds toward Koko`olua Way, and includes all side streets. Speed is reduced in the work zone and traffic is limited to one lane only. The community is advised to avoid this area as much as possible and drive with caution through the work zone. Please use alternate routes if possible.
