Repairs continue on Ala Moana water main break

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 08:21 a.m. HST, Apr 07, 2013

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.

At least this water main lasted longer than the sewer pipe in Kapolei by the Aulani Hotel. Is this why Mayor Caldwell is taking his time in making the improvements to the aging sewage & water pipes in other areas on Oahu? It must be that paving the roads & rail development take a much higher priority, right Mr. Mayor Caldwell? Since you didn't get your gas tax increase to make contributions to one of your major campaign donors, oops I mean to make road repairs, although the City & State already increased the vehicle weight tax to supposedly deal with the road repairs. Quit taking hits from your daughter's bong and hit the ground running on your campaign promises which you said that you would do if elected.
