KANEOHE, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

You might want to avoid Likelike Highway this week.

From Wednesday to Friday, Hawaiian Electric crews will intermittently close the highway in both directions as part of work on a power transmission line in Kaneohe. The traffic stoppages will be 10 minutes long and will be three times daily between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m.

The Kaneohe-bound H-3 exit ramp to Likelike Highway will also be closed intermittently.

And one Kaneohe-bound lane of the highway will be closed from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily.

Contractors will be using a helicopter to carry equipment, ropes and cables from a transmission structure to the highway, the state Transportation Department said. Traffic signs will be posted, and special-duty police officers will be in the area.
