Visitors and tour operators who plan to travel to Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park are advised that a project to re-stripe roadways and parking lots at Kīlauea Visitor Center and Nāhuku (Thurston Lava Tube) now in progress will cause traffic delays up to 15 minutes.

Work has begun at the Kīlauea Visitor Center’s (KVC) parking lot. When the KVC striping is complete, the project at Nāhuku will begin.

Work should be complete by early May.

An NPS report shows that 1,832,660 visitors to Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park in 2015 spent $151,246,200 in communities near the park.

That money supported 1,834 jobs on island, and had a cumulative benefit to the local community of $189,391,100.
