All lanes of Kalanianaole Hwy. in Kaneohe are back open after a large tree fell on the road.

The call came in just before 1 p.m. between Kamehameha Hwy. and Kapaa Quarry Rd.

Authorities say the tree initially blocked all but one lane of the highway. Workers spent several hours chopping up the tree and removing the debris.

Crews said they don’t know how the tree fell, but now that it’s been cleared, they’ll find out if any mitigation work needs to be done or if any weak trees need to come down.

No injuries were reported.
