You won’t be able to park on the streets or shoulders of Lanikai on the Fourth of July.
The city does this every holiday to balance public access to nearby beaches with public safety for the community.
Normally, the city blocks off street parking for an entire weekend, but since the holiday falls on a Wednesday, the restriction will be for that day only, from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m.
The Department of Transportation Services will place temporary “sawhorse” type signs on streets in Lanikai, and “No Left Turn” signs will be placed at the triangle intersection where S. Kalaheo Avenue meets Kailua Road near Kalapawai Market.
The Honolulu Police Department has agreed to provide an electronic messaging board at the entrance of Lanikai on Mokulua Drive to warn drivers of the parking restrictions.
Those wishing to access Lanikai beach may walk, bike, take TheBus Route 70 Lanikai, or get dropped off in Lanikai.
The Lanikai Pillboxes Trail is currently closed by the state for refurbishment work on the pillboxes.
