Road crews are cleaning up a mudslide site on Kapa'a Quarry Road near Kalaniana'ole Highway.

The site was also struck by a small mudslide last night, said Scott Ishikawa, spokesman for the state Department of Transportation.

Initial reports about the latest slide, which occurred about 2:15 p.m., incorrectly placed it on the nearby Pali Highway.

Another mudslide occurred this morning near the Pali Tunnels, closing traffic in both directions of Pali Highway at least through tonight.
