Sinkhole, sewer repair leads to Kailua traffic headaches

Lane closures will delay drivers heading into Kailua for at least a week as crews work to repair a broken sewer pipe, officials said.  

City officials believe the broken pipe caused a sink hole to form on Friday at the intersection of Hamakua Drive and Kailua Road.

Crews will be working around the clock for the next week to fix that pipe, but the work will require the closure of at least two lanes on Kailua Road, according to city officials. 

A pump bypass will keep the sewage flowing while the pipe is being repaired, officials said.

Traffic is not good in that area, as all ways into Kailua become clogged during rush hours. People going around the long way to Kailua via the H-3 also encounter the closure of the off-ramp from the H-3 that leads to Kahekili Highway, which causes drivers to "go around" to get to Kahekili Highway. Coming in direct to Kailua via Pali Highway leads to the bottleneck at Hamakua Drive. Do I sound like I know what I'm talking about? And of course the sink hole was caused by the broken sewer line, which leaked liquid into an area of a street not accustomed to having liquid, causing the sink hole, or as Civil Engineers would call it, liquefaction. Don't worry be happy!!! Your city tax dollars are at work.
