The main road in Tantalus and a Kailua-bound lane of the Pali Highway were both blocked early this morning by several fallen trees and a mudslide, respectively.

Police advised motorists to avoid the area at 3959 Round Top drive because of several trees blocking the road there.

It could be at least several hours until the area is cleared.

Crews were also dispatched to the Pali Highway after a mudslide blocked the right lane, Kailua bound, of Pali Highway at Waokanaka Street around 5 a.m.

Emergency work to the town-bound Wilson Tunnel on Likelike Highway begun at 5 p.m. Friday was not completed for this morning’s rush hour traffic. One lane was reopened to accommodate traffic.
