It seems the further one gets outside of the core of Honolulu, the worst the traffic gets. A recent report on Honolulu’s traffic confirms that this is the case.
“Forty hours sounds like a typical workweek. But that’s how long motorists are stuck in traffic each week where Moanalua Freeway’s eastbound lanes meet the H-1 freeway from the airport.
That logjam contributes to Honolulu’s rating as the worst U.S. city for rush-hour slowdowns, according to a private survey released by a Seattle firm.”

As sad as I am to say, “I told you so”, this is more evidence that traffic will continue impact your quality of life. Given this confirmation, I believe you will see real estate values in core Honolulu do better than outlying areas. So if possible, buy between Nuuanu and Hawaii Kai.
