By June Watanabe

POSTED: 01:30 a.m. HST, Nov 27, 2013

~~<p><strong>Question: </strong>There are several large signs on Pali Highway as you're headed toward the tunnels, Kailua-bound. They say something to the effect that trucks and buses are to use the center lane between 5 a.m. and noon. What problem are highway engineers trying to solve with that restriction?</p>
<p><strong>Answer:</strong> The restriction started out in 2010 as part of a study to find out what was causing vibrations in the right, Kailua-bound lane of Pali Highway, between the makai and mauka intersections with Nuuanu Pali Drive. (See <a href="http://is.gd/pB84S9.">is.gd/pB84S9.</a>)</p>
