Honolulu Board of Water Supply crews reopened the Diamond Head-bound lanes of Kona Street, between Mahukona and Keeaumoku streets about three hours after an 8-inch waterline broke earlier today.
The Ewa-bound lanes remain closed after the water main break at the intersection of Kona and Mahukona streets.
The broken main was reported to the agency shortly before 3 p.m. It was originally installed in 1948 and is scheduled for replacement as part of a BWS water system improvement project this fiscal year.
