NEW PUBLIC SERVICE TO ASSIST WITH PLANNING TRAVEL IN THE PUNA AREA

The County is pleased to announce the launch of punatraffic.com, a publicly
available web based traffic monitoring service for the lower Puna to Kea`au area.
Traffic conditions along several transportation corridors that may be affected by
the June 27th Lava Flow, including HWY 130, will be monitored with thirty
cameras. The images are available for public viewing at punatraffic.com.
The camera images refresh every three to five minutes and are meant to assist
the public in making their travel plans. The website also provides estimated drive
times based on current traffic conditions.
The traffic monitoring system is a part of the County’s overall plan to monitor
traffic flow that may have to be re-routed as a result of the June 27 Lava Flow.
The cameras were installed by ICX Transportation Group. The service went live
on March 25, 2015.
The cameras are government property and specifically programmed to only work
with government equipment. Please kokua and respect this public benefit and
service.
The website also provides social media links to Civil Defense and the County of
Hawai`i and can be updated to inform the public about road incidents.
