New traffic signals to be phased in at Honolulu International Airport

Drivers to Honolulu International Airport will see traffic signal changes starting Saturday.

The Hawaii Dept. of Transportation Airports Division says flashing yellow signal lights will be activated on new traffic signals at the bottom of the H-1 Freeway Airport off-ramps leading to the ground level (Arrivals/Baggage Claim), and Aolele St. west-bound approaching the Inter-Island Terminal.

Motorists are advised to slow down and proceed with caution through the lights.

After an orientation period, the signals will be activated with full stop lights.

The new stop lights and traffic patterns were installed to address safety issues created by vehicles weaving and merging through that section of the roadway, officials said. The traffic signals are part of a larger project for airport roadway improvements.
