Accident forces closure of Kuhio Highway, snarls traffic on Kauai


An accident in Wailua has forced the closure of Kuhio Highway on Kauai.

Details about the accident are still unclear, but it happened near the Marine Camp entrance around 5 p.m. Friday.

The closure of the highway left drivers with no other route until the police opened the Wailua Bypass Road about half-an-hour later.

That road is now currently open to southbound traffic. 

Northbound traffic is being pushed through the northbound lane of Kuhio Highway. 

Traffic is very slow moving and motorists are urged to avoid the area if possible.
