A screenshot taken before noon shows vehicles on the Pali Highway at Waokanaka St. Traffic on the Pali Highway was diverted this morning due to an ongoing police operation.

Traffic was shut down on both sides of the Pali Highway around noon Tuesday as a woman threatened to jump from the highway on the Kailua side of the tunnel, Honolulu police said.

The Pali Highway near the tunnel was closed or partially closed in both directions from 11:10 a.m. to 12:20 p.m.

Police said the woman was taken to a hospital for evaluation.

Townbound traffic was re-routed back to the Windward side, which led to traffic jams on Kamehameha and Likelike highways.
