Temporary fix may be in works for long waits at traffic light

By June Watanabe

POSTED: 01:30 a.m. HST, Feb 07, 2014

~~<p><strong>Question:</strong> The traffic signal at Kamehameha Highway and Halawa Drive is not synchronized and is probably one of the longest waits on the island. I was told it cannot be synchronized because the gizmo they use to do so is under the &quot;Commander Pacific Fleet&quot; wall sign, so access is impossible. This seems ridiculous. One would think either the Navy or city could figure out a solution. It's not much fun sitting at a red light when there isn't a car in view for hundreds of yards. Additionally, traffic backs up during rush hour. Can you help?</p>
<p><strong>Answer:</strong> Not only do you have to wait for the signals to change, but you'll also have to wait for something to be done to rectify the situation.</p>
