HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Honolulu Police will shut down portions of the H-1 and H-3 freeways again Tuesday night between the Honolulu International Airport and Windward Oahu. Portions of Kaneohe Bay Drive will also be closed.

The closure is scheduled to take place from 8 p.m. until 9:30 p.m.

This is the second time in less than a week that HPD officials are shutting down the freeways. Police say the closures are needed for motorcade escort training.

Hawaii News Now previously reported that residents in Windward Oahu were alerted to heightened security during the holidays in preparation for President Barack Obama and his family's annual Christmas vacation.
