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.
