DTS will place temporary “sawhorse” type signs on streets in Lanikai to warn drivers of the parking restrictions.

Officials say this will allow the streets to remain open for emergency vehicles and residents. The parking restriction is expected to remain in place for the rest of 2021.

Meanwhile, the Board of Water Supply will continue replacing water mains in several areas of Lanikai in phases. The current phase of construction provides limited access in and out of Lanikai.
