Maui Police Department issues advisory for potential protest motorcade
Maui Police have issued a traffic advisory recommending that residents and visitors make appropriate adjustments to their travel plans in anticipation of a protest motorcade from West Maui to Kahului Airport on Monday afternoon.
The Department released this statement: “Due to the potential for a planned protest drive from Lahaina to the Kahului Airport beginning at 1 p.m., motorists are advised to make necessary arrangements. Those needing to make flights should be prepared to leave earlier than planned.”
The motorcade is expected to leave Lahaina around 1 p.m. and travel slowly toward Kahului Airport. It was unknown how long it would take the group to reach the airport. Visitors staying in West Maui and having reservations on afternoon flights would be among those impacted.
Visitors that leave for Kahului Airport are recommended to leave before the motorcade begins.
On Sunday, supporters of Mauna Kea protesters organized a cross-island convoy along H-1 from Hawaii Kai to Waianae.
Chase N' Rainbows, West Maui Condos alerted guests and visitors about the potential motorcade on their Facebook page, which included the advisory from Maui Police.
