Anyone who’s visited Laniakea Beach on Oahu’s North Shore knows how busy it can get.
New aerial footage shows the recent traffic mess on Kamehameha Highway.
Laniakea Beach is a popular spot to check out green sea turtles. The spot attracts hoards of people who park on the mauka-side of the road and zip back and forth across the street, creating a traffic slowdown in both directions.
The city and state are working on a plan that involves realigning Kamehameha Highway, placing parking on the mauka-side of the road.
Since realigning the highway could take years to complete, the agencies are talking about possibly limiting or eliminating the parking.
A community meeting to discuss the Laniakea Beach traffic is scheduled for Sept. 5 at Sunset Beach Elementary School. The meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m.
