Transportation initiatives resume back to normal
As traffic begins to increase and people head back to work, the City and County of Honolulu’s Department of Transportation Services will be restarting contraflow operations July 1st on Kapiolani Boulevard and Ward Avenue during peak rush hour times. Morning contraflow coning will resume from 6:30am to 8:30am Monday to Friday (not including holidays). Afternoon contraflow coning will resume from 4pm to 6:30pm Monday to Friday (not including holidays).
DTS would also like to inform residents that parking along South King, Beretania, Date Streets and Wilder Avenue, will no longer be allowed to park in “No Parking Tow Away Zones” during peak A.M. and P.M. hours (6:30-8:30am and 3:30-5:30pm). Vehicles parked in these Tow Away Zones must be relocated and will be properly enforced.
With traffic slowly starting to ramp up, DTS would like to remind drivers, pedestrians and bicyclists to travel safely. We would also like to encourage the continuation of telecommuting for employees if possible, to reduce the amount of traffic congestion, cars and collisions on the roadways. We feel that those who choose to telecommute to work help play a large role in the reduction of collisions, congestion and carbon emissions.
