The state will set up contraflow lanes on Pali Highway that will allow two lanes of traffic to travel from Kailua to Honolulu Thursday morning, a state transportation spokesman said.

Travel to Kailua on Pali Highway will remain closed.

The highway was closed today when a landslide on the Nu'uanu side of the tunnels blocked the roadway.

From 4 a.m. to noon Thursday, traffic from Kailua traveling to Honolulu will be contraflowed onto the Kailua-bound lanes near St. Stephen's Diocesan Center, state Transportation Department spokesman Scott Ishikawa said.

Traffic will proceed through the Kailua-bound Pali tunnels and be redirected onto the townbound lanes on the Nu'uanu side, Ishikawa said.
