The managers of the Thirty Meter Telescope project have announced that they will resume construction of the telescope on Wednesday.

Since the state of Hawaii has refused to remove the protesters, who have been camping illegally on the road up to the mountaintop, expect some conflict come Wednesday when the first construction vehicle tries to drive past.
