State crew clears large boulder from Farrington Highway


A crew from the Department of Transportation cleared a large boulder that was blocking the eastbound lanes on Farrington Highway near Yokohama Bay in Leeward Oahu today.

Police received a call about the boulder, described to be four-to-five feet in diameter, at about 4 a.m. Officers contraflowed traffic until a crew arrived and removed it using a tractor.

Heavy rains likely caused the boulder to dislodge, said spokesman Tim Sakahara of the transportation department.

The eastbound lanes re-opened at about 8:30 a.m.
