PUNA, Hawaii - Concerned residents within Leilani Estates have set up a lava viewing sign along Highway 130 directing people down the highway instead of down Leilani Avenue, which leads right to fissure 8.

The reason they're doing this is to direct people to a public viewing sight -- Pohoiki Bay or Isaac Hale Beach Park which officially opens Thursday.

Mayor Harry Kim is set to have a blessing ceremony Thursday afternoon.

What they're trying to keep people away from is entering the residential area giving people their privacy respecting that. However, now that the checkpoints are down -- people can access that, but there is no place to park. And these residents have told KITV4 that they will be towing them.

They are working with a private towing company to tow anybody who is parked, and may be milling about in that area.
