HILO, Hawaii (AP) - Mauna Kea officials are discussing ways to manage increased visitor traffic.

The Hawaii Tribune-Herald reports about 100,000 more people visited last year than in 2010 and University of Hawaii spokesman Dan Meisenzahl says it's probably due to improved access.

The Office of Mauna Kea Management is hosting open houses this week on its administrative rules process. Managing public access will be part of discussions.
