The H-1 viaduct town-bound lanes.

Town-bound lanes of the H-1 freeway were reopened at about 2:20 p.m. today following a brief shutdown.

Honolulu Police closed the lanes at around 2 p.m. following an accident involving a motorcyclist.

A 21-year-old male was transferred to a trauma center in serious condition, according to Emergency Medical Services personnel.

The closure backed up traffic on Dillingham Boulevard and Nimitz Highway as police rerouted traffic from the airport viaduct.

    They had to shut down the whole highway again?

  2. truelies says:

    There has to be an accident and closure everyday or else something is drastically wrong!!!

  3. allie says:

    increasingly mo-peds and motorcycles are targets of speeding and angry drivers. It is scary out there.

    Speeding in and of itself does not kill. What kills is the need to drive within a millimeter to the car in front, driving side by side with other vehicles, not yielding right of way, and cutting off people signalling for lane changes or merges. BTW, do any of this on the German Autobahn, and you will get pulled over. On the other hand, I have seen too many motorcycle riders driving like maniacs. Speeding and weaving in and out of traffic. Was not there when this guy cracked up, but just saying. If someone changed lanes into the motorcycle rider, that refers to the above concerning vehicles not driving side by side in each other’s blind spots.
