Eddie Would Go — The Hawaii Department of Transportation is postponing planned lane closures, today, on Kamehameha Highway along Oahu’s North Shore in anticipation of thousands of people venturing to Waimea Bay to watch the surf tournament in memory of Eddie Aikau. In addition, there won’t be any lane closures on the Karsten Thot Bridge in Wahiawa today.

Electronic message boards are strategically placed at key decision-making points, including Wahiawa, Kahaluu and Kahuku, to alert motorists of heavy traffic on the North Shore. Be patient, drive safely and expect delays.

As with past Eddie’s events, HDOT expects the number of cars on the road to significantly exceed the capacity. HDOT has been in coordination with the Honolulu Police Department, the City & County of Honolulu Parks and Recreation Department, and the Department of Transportation Services to mitigate impacts to the best extent possible.
