KANEOHE, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Heads up, commuters: Filming for Hawaii Five-0 will spur intermittent closures of the H-1 Freeway in West Oahu on Tuesday.

From 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., there will be "roving" eastbound lane closures on the freeway near the Kapolei/Ewa off-ramp.

Special duty officers will hold traffic for about one to two minutes at a time, then will re-open all lanes.

The state said lanes will remain open for the majority of the expected closure period.

It's believed to be the first time the state has approved a roving closure of the H-1 Freeway for filming. 

Meanwhile, filming has also closed all lanes of the Kualakai Parkway in the southbound direction from 7 a.m. to 3:45 p.m.

And the parkway is closed in the northbound direction from 8:15 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Electronic message boards have been posted.

On Monday, filming for Hawaii Five-0 shut down portions of the H-3 Freeway, snarling Kaneohe-bound traffic in the afternoon.

Tim Sakahara, state Transportation Department spokesman, said requests to close lanes or freeways are carefully reviewed to determine traffic impacts.

Production companies cover all state-funded costs associated with lane closures, and pay a nominal permitting fee.

"Each request is considered on a case-by-case basis," he said.

This story will be updated.
