HILO, Hawaii (AP) - State officials say construction of the Pahoa roundabout will begin by the end of the year and possibly by the end of the summer.
The Hawaii Tribune-Herald reports (http://bit.ly/1de3GbT) that the state Department of Transportation postponed the $5 million project last year while the June 27 lava flow threatened lower Puna. The flow stalled outside Pahoa last March but is still active near the Pu’u `O’o vent.
DOT public information officer Tim Sakahara says the agency is working with Isemoto Contracting on setting a start date. He says the project could get underway by August or September at the earliest.
The roundabout will be at the intersection of Highway 130 and Pahoa Village Road. Sakahara says construction will last 180 working days.
Highway traffic will be rerouted during that time.
