The state Department of Transportation’s Airports Division is advising motorists of the new speed bumps, which were installed Monday at the Hilo International Airport fronting the terminal building.
The modifications were installed to address community concerns about speeding in the area, according to DOT.
The first speed bump was installed at the crosswalk on the Terminal Access Road across from the rental car lot. It will be monitored for several weeks to help motorists and pedestrians adjust to the new changes. DOT plans to eventually install speed bumps at all crosswalks locations. Signs will be in place to warn drivers of the alteration.
Motorists are advised to drive with caution while entering the airport terminal area and to be aware of the new modifications.
