HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The state Department of Transportation (DOT) reminds Oahu motorists that Kalanianaole Highway remains closed in both directions between Lunalilo Home Road and Kealahou Street near Koko Head Crater Tuesday evening.

The DOT says the roadway will not likely reopen until later tonight, due to rock falls caused by heavy rains.

Traffic in both directions is being detoured around the affected area via Lunalilo Home Road, Hawaii Kai Drive and Kealahou Street.

Police officers are on-site directing traffic.  

Motorists are advised to drive with caution and to allow for extra travel time.
