Making a connection in web of wires

Wasa Electrical Services Inc. electrician Paul Kaiama selects the correct two wires among a sea of wires within the guts of a traffic signal controller box at the Kahului intersection of Wakea Avenue and Alamaha Street Tuesday morning. Kaiama said the Wasa crew was putting in microwave sensors to run the traffic lights. The microwave installation was in preparation for upcoming roadwork that will disrupt the “detector loops” embedded in the asphalt that usually run the signals.
