Keolu Drive is contra-flowed as crews repair main break

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 06:19 a.m. HST, Apr 11, 2013

Motorists using Keolu Drive in Enchanted Lake this morning can expect slow traffic conditions between Hui and Nanialii streets as Board of Water Supply crews continue to repair a12-inch water main that broke Wednesday afternoon.

The break forced the closure of both makai-bound lanes on Keolu Drive and special duty officers are contra-flowing one of two mauka-bound lanes.

Crews restored water service to businesses in a small shopping complex on Keolu Drive near Hui Street at about 5:45 a.m. The businesses had been without water since the main broke shortly after 4:30 p.m.

Crews replaced about 8 feet of the damaged main, which was originally installed in 1955. After the main is replaced, the road will also have to be repaved.

The Board of Water Supply expects the repairs to continue for most of the morning.

Practically every day there is a water main break, a sewer line break, sewer spill, or several new potholes. All a testimony of a dysfunctional government that continues to steal the money that was supposed to fix these things.

The pipe was over 60 years old, built when the subdivision first went in. Honolulu is no different from most other metropolitan areas on the mainland with aging infrastructure and growing populations.
