The Hawaii Department of Transportation has installed new traffic lights aimed at making it safer to enter the Honolulu International Airport.

On Saturday May 10, flashing yellow stop lights will switch on at the bottom of the H1 off-ramp Exit 16 heading to the arrivals section of the airport and on Aolele Street leading to the Inter-Island Terminal.

“Motorists are advised to slow down and proceed with caution through the lights,” the department said in a press release. “After an orientation period, the signals will be activated with full stop lights.”
