Citing “dangerously high surf conditions,” state officials shut down both lanes of the North Shore’s main highway between Haleiwa and Turtle Bay on Monday afternoon.

Only emergency vehicles, TheBus and local traffic were allowed to travel that stretch of the Kamehameha Highway.

Other closed facilities included Haleiwa Alii Beach Park, Haleiwa Beach Park, Sunset Beach Park, Waimea Bay and Kaena Point State Park Reserve.

A high-surf warning will be in effect until 6 p.m. Tuesday for north- and west-facing beaches of Oahu, Molokai, Kauai and Niihau, and the north-facing shores of Maui and the Big Island, according to the National Weather Service. In addition, high-surf advisories were issued for east-facing beaches of Oahu and west-facing shores of Maui and the Big Island.
