HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

The Hawaii Department of Transportation (HDOT) advises motorists the H-3 Freeway will be closed in the Kaneohe-bound direction Wednesday, Aug. 19. Special duty police officers will block all on-ramps to the H-3 from 4:00 am – 3:00 pm. Halawa-bound traffic will remain open.

People seeking access to Windward Oahu can use the Likelike Highway or Pali Highway.

The Freeway will be used as part of production for 'Hawaii Five-0'. All police officers, enforcement, signs and expenses will be paid by the production company. In addition to the equipment on the freeway, a helicopter will be used to film some of the scenes.

Motorists are prohibited from stopping on the Halawa-bound side of the freeway to watch the production. The shoulder is only to be used for emergency purposes. Authorities will monitor the area to make sure drivers maintain a safe and legal speed.

Police, fire and ambulance vehicles on an emergency call will have access to the freeway during the closure.
