A second northbound lane will be added into the Princeville area to ease some of the traffic buildup on Kuhio Highway, allowing drivers only going as far as Princeville an alternative pathway.

The contractor will suspend operations and be off the roadway during the midday convoy at Hanalei Hill in order to accommodate the traffic in the area.

Work hours are from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. through Thursday, April 29, weather permitting.
