    Traffic on Honoapiʻilani Hwy in the area of the Scenic Lookout is slowed in both directions due to inclement weather and a large boulder on the Lahaina-bound shoulder. Police and State Highways crews are working to remove the boulder. Motorists should expect delays and use caution while driving.
