Morning road closures challenge Big Isle motorists

Two unrelated road closures on Hawaii island greeted motorists this morning.

The first closure, in Hawaii Ocean View Estates, occurred after a vehicle accident along Highway 11 at the 85 mile marker around 5:30 a.m. The highway was subsequently closed in both directions.

Police advised motorists to avoid the area. It was unknown when the highway would reopen.

The second closure was on Napoopoo Road near Kahau Place in South Kona due to a downed utility pole resulting from a traffic accident. The accident occurred before 6 a.m.

Police said the road would be closed until at least noon today. Motorists trying to get to Highway 11 were advised to take Keala O Keawe road instead.
