HAWAII KAI, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

All lanes of Kalanianaole Highway have been reopened after several hours of severely jammed traffic, according to Department of Transportation officials.

Honolulu police temporarily contraflowed traffic into a lane headed west after a fallen tree blocked all three eastbound lanes of Kalanianaole highway opposite Kalani High School around 10:30 a.m. on Saturday.

The blocked lanes severely backed up traffic on the H-1 Freeway headed east from Kalani Iki all the way to the Koko Head exit on the H1 Freeway.

Hawaii DOT crews were able to clear the fallen tree around 5 p.m.
