North shore residents are fed up with the traffic in Laniakea.

It’s become a popular spot to check out green sea turtles.

Tour buses and cars often double park on the mauka side of the road and people zip back and forth across Kamehameha Highway, creating a traffic mess.

The state Department of Transportation has a short-term solution to block parking on the mauka side of the road.

“It’s something we can do fairly quickly. Signs need to be made, barricades need to be located in that area, but maybe by end of the year, early 2014,” state Department of Transportation spokesperson Caroline Sluyter said.

Some opponents believe limiting parking, is not the best solution.

The DOT says they want to have the community back this idea before they move forward.

A meeting to present it to a community task force is scheduled later this month.
