WAIKIKI (HawaiiNewsNow) -

The Ala Wai canal will be closed from the Ala Moana Boulevard bridge to the Kalakaua Avanue Bridge for 10 days in September for security reasons.

Up to 10,000 people, including international dignataries, are expected to attend the World Conservation Congress at the Hawaii Convention Center.

The canal will be closed from September 1 to September 10.

The last time the canal was closed was in 2011 for APEC.
