By Star-Advertiser staff

Dillingham Boulevard  between Kalihi and Mokauea streets reopened overnight after repaired a broken water main  and repaved the road Thursday.

The Board of Water Supply said the break in an 8-inch main happened at 1827 Dillingham Boulevard at about 7:30 a.m. Thursday.

Service was restored to about 12 customers at about 6 p.m.

The pipe break closed all lanes of Dillingham during the morning commute. The makai lanes were opened for contraflow until the afternoon, when all lanes were closed again as crews repaired the road.

Dillingham Boulevard reopened to all traffic at about midnight, the Board of Water Supply said.

The cast iron main was originally installed in 1938.

This happens every week somewhere. Replace, don't repair old lines. Wait until the train runs down the street vibrating the 50 plus year old mains. That will force you to ride the train because the roads will be closed.

This is what happens when our elected officials keep raising our rates and nothing done about it. I suggest when the Board of Water does the repairs we can back fill the site with some of our elected officials!
