Traffic cameras coming to Windward Oahu

KANEOHE (KHNL) - A new traffic camera system will make the drive to and from Windward Oahu easier.

The City's Department of Transportation Services will be installing traffic cameras in the Kaneohe area.

The camera system will involve 19 cameras, fiber optic cabling and communication equipment installed along Kamehameha Highway from Castle Junction to Halaulani Street, and along Kahekili Highway from Likelike Highway to Haiku Road.

The $1,697,000 project is scheduled to be completed in May 2009.

Upon completion, the City will monitor the traffic and adjust signal timing from the Traffic Management Center.

Motorists will have access to the video by clicking on the City's Web site link on this page.

Future camera expansion projects are slated for Kailua, Kapolei, Waipio and Waipahu.
