A traffic alert for drivers: Avoid McCully Street on your way home tonight.
Lane closures will remain in effect between Kapiolani Boulevard and Fern Street through the afternoon rush hour.
Hawaiian Electric crews are blocking both mauka-bound lanes as they upgrade equipment. They were supposed to wrap up at 230 p.m., but the utility says unforeseen circumstances kept them onsite.
The earliest time they’ll be able to leave the area is 6:30 p.m., officials say.
That means only one lane will be open in each direction in the makai-bound lanes.
Drivers are advised to take alternate routes during rush hour.
