HPD: Kamehameha Highway in Wahiawa is reopened in both directions at Karsten Thot Bridge.

[Original story posted below]

Kamehameha Highway is closed south bound in Wahiawa at the Karsten Thot Bridge due to a downed pole.

Traffic is now being contra-flowed.

The north bound lane is open but south bound traffic will not be allowed past Whitmore Avenue. South bound through traffic will have to reroute on to Kamananui to Wilikina.

A viewer emailed Hawaii News Now saying a car struck the pole just south of the bridge and that traffic is backed up in both directions.
