Daniel K. Inouye Highway (Saddle Road) is open to all traffic.

Motorists are asked to drive with care and caution on Saddle Road, especially in the vicinity of Mauna Kea Access Road, which remains closed until further notice.

Hawaii County Code 24-202 prohibits vehicles parking between 2 and 6 a.m. and vehicles to be parked parallel to the shoulder and all the wheels off the paved shoulder. Violations of these rules along these areas of the highway are subject to citations being issued and potentially being towed from the area.

Everyone’s cooperation is needed to prevent injury to people or damage vehicles using the Daniel K. Inouye Highway. The parking situation is being monitored and could result in potential closure of the highway should the parking situation continue to pose a problem to public safety.
