APEC timeline: Signs, park closures and traffic

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Some of the first true signs that the public will see is coming this weekend as crews will begin installing APEC banners along the streets of Waikiki.

On Sunday, the Ala Moana Regional Park will close at 10 p.m. The public will not be able to drive or park in the parking lot, but the park and beach will remain open.

On Monday, the media will begin to move into the Hawaii Convention Center including Hawaii News Now's Howard Dicus. He'll be reporting live all week long, bringing the latest on what's going on inside those walls and from the other APEC gatherings.

Parking and walking in the area will be difficult as a number of sidewalks will close in the area next week. Learn more about traffic details by heading to the APEC page on our website.

On Tuesday, a number of bus routes will change. TheBus encourages riders to check if their routes are impacted.

Also on Tuesday, a number of parking restrictions will go in effect including the Hilton Hawaiian Lagoon's parking lot.

President Obama is expected to arrive on Thursday or Friday at Hickam Air Force Base.

On Friday, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will be holding events with the APEC ministers. Many people are wondering if the death of her mother will prevent her from attending the event, but so far Clinton is expected to make it.

The president will hold a news conference on Sunday as APEC concludes. The next day Michelle Obama will attend a job fair at Pearl Harbor and the president will hold a fundraiser at Disney's Aulani Resort.
