Stalled semi-trailer closes one lane of Kawaihae Road

Motorists are advised to expect delays Thursday afternoon due to a stalled semi-trailer on Kawaihae Road in South Kohala.

The semitrailer, which was towing a trailer, is apparently blocking one lane of the mauka-makai road that connects Kawaihae to Waimea, the Hawaii Police Department said shortly after 4 p.m. Thursday. A tow truck is en route to the scene.

One lane of traffic is open at this time. The closure is expected to last about two hours.
