[ AD HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM THIS STORY ]
Events that will involve closures including President Barack Obama’s arrival Friday night, and transporting dignitaries between Waikiki and Ko Olina on Saturday for the conclusion of the APEC Leader’s Conference.
"We strongly urge the public monitor the news media and other information sources prior to getting on the road," said transportation services Director Wayne Y. Yoshioka. "However, some movements requiring road closures may be unannounced. The city continues to remind the public to please plan for significant delays."
The H-1 freeway and certain other roads between the airport area and Waikiki were closed for approximately 40 minutes this morning during rush hour for the arrival of People’s Republic of China President Hu Jintao. Other road closures may be shorter or significantly longer, depending on the circumstances.
Motorists are advised to leave early, make sure your vehicle is in good operating order, and be sensitive to other drivers.
