Highway reopens after landslide

Piilani Highway near Kalepa in southeast Maui, which had been closed since a powerful thunderstorm generated a landslide Oct. 24, was reopened Thursday, the county Public Works Department said.

Department officials had said that the section of the road needed to be stabilized following the landslide. They had complained about people moving a “Road Closed” sign and passing through the area, which was unsafe.
