Repair work continues on Oʻahu’s Pali Highway where landslides in February blocked the tunnels that connect Honolulu with the Windward side.

Honolulu-bound lanes of the Pali Highway will remain closed through August to complete repairs following the landslides that began on Feb. 18.

The state Department of Transportation announced today that it will be installing a mesh barrier above the tunnel to protect construction crews from any falling rocks or debris.
