The Hawai‘i Department of Transportation is urging all motorists to exercise caution as they approach the intersection of Mauna Kea Access Road and the Daniel K. Inouye Highway (DKI, formerly, Saddle Road) due to the increased activity on Mauna Kea Access Road.

On Tuesday, July 16, the Hawai‘i Department of Transportation plans to secure the Daniel K. Inouye Highway by installing barricades so no one can parks along the road like they did Monday.
