Police are advising Hilo motorists that because Big Island schools will be closed, there will be normal two-way traffic patterns on Waianuenue Avenue and Kapiolani Street on Monday (January 21, 2002).
The usual weekday morning one-way traffic patterns will not be in effect because public schools will be closed for Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day, a state holiday held in honor of the slain civil rights leader and Nobel Peace Prize winner.
The one-way traffic patterns will start again when school resumes on Tuesday (January 22, 2002).
During school days, traffic on Waianuenue below Komohana Street is one-way in the makai direction from 7:15 to 8 a.m. on school days. During the same hours, traffic along Kapiolani between Haili Street and Waianuenue is one-way in the Puna direction.
