  • bws logo

Roadwork is scheduled to begin Monday, March 31st to replace the water main on Kapiolani Boulevard and lane closures and traffic delays can be expected, the Board of Water Supply announced.

The BWS is hiring a contractor to replace 2,800 feet of a 12-inch main that was installed in 1938 and approximately 1,000 feet of an 8-inch main installed in 1953 along Kapiolani Boulevard from McCully Street to Date Street.

The roadwork will take place Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Lane closures will be necessary at various locations throughout the work area, the BWS said.

The renewal of the water system will improve fire protection, enhance water service to residents in the area and reduce future water main breaks, according to the BWS.

The project is expected to be completed in December 2014.
