  • 2018 January 12 SPT - HSA PHOTO BY BRUCE ASATO The Armed Services Disciplinary Control Board put out an advisory on Waikiki crime, specifically in the Kalakaua Avenue/Royal Hawaiian Avenue intersection late December. There are about a dozen establishments in this area that were mentioned in the Advisory from Moose's to Tsunamis and Club Alley Cat. ASDCB meets periodically and can place establishment off limits that would mean military members who frequent them could face punishment up to court martial.

City officials said the removal of an ironwood tree fronting 162 Kailua Road will require vehicular traffic to be contra-flowed around the worksite beginning at 8:30 a.m. today.

The tree slated for removal is about a block from the roundabout fronting Kalapawai Market at Kailua Road and Kalaheo Avenue. Work is scheduled from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. daily, starting today through Friday. Traffic control measures will be in effect between Kainalu Drive and Aumoe Road on the two-lane Kailua Road.

Arborists determined that the tree, which is about 80 feet tall, suffered from extensive decay and repeated pest infestation and required immediate removal.

“The Division of Urban Forestry thanks the public for its patience as work is performed to remove this tree,” city officials said in a news release. “We urge the public, especially pedestrians and bicyclists along Kailua Road, to please use caution while in proximity to the worksite.”
