The new traffic signal at Ane Keohokālole Hwy and Kealakehe Parkway in North Kona is scheduled to be operational Wednesday, Oct. 9.

Flashing lights will prepare motorists for the new signal the day before.

Wireless detectors embedded in the roadway surface will detect cars and trucks approaching the intersection and program the traffic signal to optimize traffic flow.
