(BIVN) – The way to get into Old Kona Airport Park will change, starting today, as the E.K. Fernandez Big Island Fair 2017 comes to town.
The Hawai‘i County Department of Parks and Recreation will temporarily change the access route into Kailua Park, also known as Old Kona Airport Park, from Wednesday, September 6 through Tuesday, September 12, 2017, to accommodate the Big Island Fair.
During this period, officials say vehicular traffic entering Kailua Park will be diverted to the beach access road located at the north end of Kuakini Highway.
In a media release, the Department of Parks and Recreation reminded all motorists not to exceed the road’s five mile per hour speed limit, which will be in effect until normal traffic patterns are reinstated in the morning of Tuesday, September 12. Signs will be posted to inform motorists of the routing change and affected dates.
“The Department of Parks and Recreation thanks the public for its understanding while it implements the temporary routing change aimed at protecting park users, fair attendees and fair operators, who will be setting up and disassembling carnival rides,” the county says.
