UPDATE: DLNR has just posted official notice of an emergency rule limiting access on Mauna Kea in an attempt to assert control to the mountain following months of protests over the controversial Thirty Meter Telescope project. The 120-day rule will prohibit camping on the mountain and restrict access at night between the hours of 10 p.m. and 4 a.m. to anyone not traveling in a vehicle within 1 mile of the summit road at any time. 

Officials say enforcement will now follow. According to sources, DLNR officers will be stationed on the mountain nightly to inform the public and issue citations or make arrests as needed.
