Crews worked overnight to repair a 12-inch water main that broke on Ala Moana Boulevard near Ena Road.
The work forced the closure of all Ewa-bound lanes of Ala Moana Boulevard
Police routed traffic around the water main break area to either Ena Road or Kalia Road.
Once the pipe is repaired, a paving contractor was to repair the roadway before Ala Moana can be completely re-opened.
As of 1 a.m., water service had been re-routed around the main break and restored to one customer, who had been without water.
The main broke at about 6 p.m.
The Board of Water Supply said the main was originally installed in 1949.
