Downed utility line disrupts traffic near Lihue Airport

Traffic is building near Lihue Airport on Kauai due to a downed utility line.

The line has prompted police to close Kapule Highway from Ahukini to Kaana roads, which blocks the entrance to the airport.

The Mokulele Loop airport roadway is being used to exit out of Lihue Airport.

Officials say this does not appear to be related to a traffic crash.

Utility companies have been notified and police are on scene directing traffic.
