Beginning at 5 p.m., two makai (ocean) lanes on Beretania Street between Victoria and Richards Streets will be temporarily closed. Around 5:30 p.m., another makai lane will also close.
Alapai Street between King and Beretania Streets will be closed beginning at 6 p.m., and traffic will be redirected at the intersection of Punchbowl and King Streets. Vehicles heading makai bound on Punchbowl Street toward the intersection will be required to turn right on Beretania Street. No vehicles will be allowed to head in the mauka (mountain) direction on Punchbowl Street between King and Beretania Streets.
The streets will reopen once the participants have passed. Drivers are asked to take alternate routes and expect delays.
