LAST UPDATED: 01:11 p.m. HST, May 04, 2014

A Board of Water Supply crew finished repairs on a broken 12-inch water main near Aloha Tower on Sunday morning, a BWS spokeswoman said.

All lanes are now open.

The main break was initially reported as a leak at about 2 a.m. Saturday.

One Koko Head- and one Ewa-bound lane on Ala Moana Boulevard were closed between Alakea and Punchbowl streets for the repairs.

Two customers were without water. Service was restored around midnight, the spokeswoman said.

The main was first installed in 1900.

Patch, patch, patch. Time is past due to change the crumbling infrastructure. This and our sewers could be fixed with rail money and solve more traffic problems that the 2% the rail is going to help.

We already have plenty of water mains breaking and sewer lines breaking. Look for MORE as they build more and more condominiums in Kakaako and elsewhere.

This is just one of may such breaks to come. Too bad we didn't use all that rail money to fix our crumbling infrastructure instead of building a train from no where to a shopping center. I don't think any of use will ever forgive Muffi for his rail fiasco.
