HALAWA (KHNL) - For two nights next week the state will be closing the H-3 tunnels for a special project. It's changing the name of the H-3 tunnels again. Signs will go up for the Tetsuo Harano Tunnel. He spent 52 years as a highways administrator, and pushed to get the H-3 tunnels built.
The H3 will be closed in the Kaneohe bound direction on Tuesday from 7 at night to 4 in the morning. It'll be closed at the same time in the town bound direction on Wednesday.
State transportation employee Clude Morita says, "We're thrilled the state government would honor a state employee like Tets Harano who put so many years of his life into the highway system."
