HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - An accident involving a contractor's piece of heavy paving equipment has forced the city to close Kukui Street from Queen Emma Street to the Pali Highway.

This portion of Kukui Street is expected to be closed for approximately 24 hours. Motorists are advised to use a different route to access Kailua-bound Pali Highway, and to listen to the radio for updates from the city's Traffic Management Center.

The closure will also affect southbound traffic on Queen Emma Street.

The accident involved a contractor's piece of heavy equipment that fell over Tuesday afternoon. A crane will be brought in to right the equipment and move it.
