LIHUE, Hawaii (AP) - Kauai will spend $214,000 to study traffic problems plaguing the island’s North Shore and South Shore.

The Garden Island reports (https://bit.ly/1JZBmW4) that traffic leading to Hanalei bridge can back up into Hanalei town, frustrating residents and visitors.

Kauai County officials say population growth and increased tourism have created parking and traffic issues along key roads.

The county transportation planner said the study will begin in mid-May and consider improvements to the shuttle system.

The new North Shore Shuttle service formed less than a year ago. It is operated by Experience Kauai and subsidized by the county, but some say it will be a challenge to make it financially sustainable.

San Francisco-based firm Nelson/Nygaard Consulting Associates, Inc., will develop the study.
