Kapiolani Boulevard main replacement to close lanes in McCully

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 11:12 p.m. HST, Apr 06, 2014

A water main replacement project on Kapiolani Boulevard will likely mean intermittent lane closures Monday through Friday between McCully and Paani streets, the Board of Water Supply said in a news release.

Crews will be probing for existing utility lines that cross the new waterline.

The work takes place between 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

A contractor is replacing about 2,800 feet of a 12-inch water main installed in 1938 and about 1,000 feet of an 8-inch main installed in 1953.

The work is expected to last at least through December.

Motorists are advised to expect delays and use alternate routes during constructions hours if possible.

The Board of Water Supply is posting weekly updates on the project at www.boardofwatersupply.com.

Starting at 8:30 means about half hour lost just closing the lanes and removing the steel plates from the trenches. Then you lose about another 45 minutes cleaning up, getting everything safe, and removing the traffic barricades. And you gotta give the workers half an hour for lunch. So out of the 7 hour workday, you only get about 5 to 5-1/2 hours of truly productive work.
