Traffic News

As of June 28, Kaelepulu Drive between Aalapapa and Mokulua is a one-way street going towards the ocean, with parking restricted to the right side of the road.  There is no left turn onto Kaelepulu from Mokulua.

Below is the progress status of the Lanikai Association initiatives:

      Increasing fines for parking in the bike lane: completed and implemented;
      No Parking icons painted on the bike lane pavement: completed;
      "No Parking Here to Corner" signs at select, (4), intersections;
      No Parking signs on the bike lane side of the loop.

Both DTS’ and our own studies show that by far the greatest cause of congestion for traffic leaving Lanikai is the vehicular traffic turning left at Kalapawai on to Kailua Road headed toward Kailua town.  This plan creates what is effectively a designated left turn stacking lane with a free flowing right lane for cars wanting to go straight.  The DTS models project that this change should go a long way toward alleviating the Kalapawai bottleneck. 

KHON examines this in their news segment below.
