LANIKAI (HawaiiNewsNow) - Drivers beware: access to Lanikai this weekend is going to be tight.

In a continuing effort to balance public access to the popular Lanikai beachfront and the community’s safety, the City and County of Honolulu will restrict parking in Lanikai during the three-day Veterans Day holiday weekend.

On Saturday Nov. 10 through Monday Nov. 12 there will be no parking allowed on all Lanikai streets and shoulders from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Those who wish to visit the popular Lanikai beach or Lanikai Pillboxes Trail may walk, bike, take the city bus (route 70 Lanikai) or get dropped off.

At the entrance to Lanikai on Mokulua Drive, HPD will place an electronic messaging board with the parking restrictions as a reminder to motorists.

Travelers are also being advised of limited parking at the state’s airports.

State transportation officials say that parking spaces at HNL and neighbor island airports is expected to be limited. Officials say many neighbor islanders will be flying to Oahu for the Bruno Mars concert, and may leave their cars at airports.

Ongoing construction at HNL has also reduced parking availability by more than 600 stalls.

Officials urge travelers to get dropped off or use alternate means of travel to the airport.
