Eastbound lanes in Pearl City closed for main break

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 5:02 p.m. HST, Mar 6, 2014

The two righthand, eastbound lanes of Kamehameha Highway were closed Thursday morning between Lipoa Place and Pali Momi Street in Pearl City because of a water main break.

Three customers, all businesses, at the Pearl Kai Shopping Center are without water, a Board of Water Supply spokesman said. A water bypass system has been installed and a water wagon has been set up in the parking lot of McDonald's to provide an alternate water source. 

The main break was reported at 4:53 a.m. at 98-135 Kamehameha Highway.

Police had shut down all eastbound lanes, but reopened the left lane at 6:15 a.m.

Traffic is being redirected up Kaonohi Street to Moanalua Road.

The 12-inch cast iron main was originally installed in 1961, according to the BWS.

Motorists are advised to avoid the area as work is expected to continue throughout the day.
