First Friday Event-Hotel Street Bus Detours

 

Mayor Mufi Hannemann has announced that effective Friday, May 1, 2009, and EVERY FIRST FRIDAY of each month, the City's Department of Transportation Services will detour City buses off of Hotel Street, starting from 7:30 p.m. and until the last scheduled bus operating on Hotel Street after midnight. 

 

“First Fridays are enormously popular,” said Mayor Mufi Hannemann.  “Due to the large amount of pedestrian traffic on Hotel Street and in the interest of public safety, we have listened to the concerns of the local merchants and gallery owners.  So beginning tomorrow, we will set up traffic barricades in the Downtown area to restrict City buses on Hotel Street between the Hotel/Alakea intersection and King/Beretania Junction westbound bus stops.”  

 

Also, prior to this event, "First Friday" event notices will be posted at each of the affected Hotel Street bus stops to inform bus riders that detoured buses will operate either eastbound on King Street or westbound on Beretania Street.  For the "Last Bus" connections, the eastbound connection will be at the King/Beretania Junction bus stop and the westbound connection will be at the Beretania/Pali bus stop.

 

The following bus routes are to start their respective DETOURS at approximately 7:15 p.m., or when the traffic barricades have been set up by the hired private contractor.  They will be responsible for removal of these barricades after the last scheduled Hotel Street bus.

 

NOTE: Each month, a new "FIRST FRIDAY" detour notice will be processed with the respective date and times of the event.
