HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Heads up drivers: Traffic in Downtown Honolulu may be worse than normal on Wednesday.

Some 5,000 Native Hawaiian community members, supporters and students are expected to march from the Royal Mausoleum in Nuuanu to 'Iolani Palace to commemorate the 125th anniversary of the overthrow of the Hawaiian kingdom.

Festivities are planned from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. at 'Iolani Palace.

The march is scheduled to start at 9 a.m. Two lanes of Nuuanu Avenue will be blocked off from Mauana Ala to Judd Street. At Nuuanu and Judd Street, marchers will be directed to the single, far right lane closest to the sidewalk.

They will continue towards Beretania St., Richards St. and South King St., eventually ending up at the palace.

Honolulu police will be on scene assisting with traffic flow.

Adding to the congestion, the 2018 Legislative Session begins at the Hawaii State Capitol. The opening session begins at 10 a.m.

Officials urge motorists heading to either event to carpool or catch shuttles.
