Kalia Road opened after gas, water fixes; Water repairs slow Waipahu traffic

    Board of Water Supply crews use heavy equipment to repair a 12-inch water main break on Kalia Road early Wednesday morning.

Board of Water Supply crews restored normal water service Wednesday night to two buildings in Waikiki and reopened Kalia Road by about 6 a.m. after repaving the roadway.

But another repair project closed mauka-bound lanes of Paiwa Street between Hina Street and the H-1 freeway Thursday morning.

Board of Water Supply crews continued repairing a valve on Paiwa Street near Hina Street. A special duty officer is helping contra-flow a makai-bound lane to help motorists trying to get to the freeway.

But motorists can expect slowdowns and are urged to find alternate routes.

The project was planned to be completed overnight to minimize traffic disruptions, but apparently took longer than expected.

Residents continue to have water service, but may experience lower-than-normal water pressure.

Meanwhile, the Board of Water Supply restored water service to the Hale Koa Hotel and the Asia Pacific Center for Security Studies on Kalia Road Wednesday night.

Kalia Road between Paoa Place and Saratoga Road remained closed overnight until Hawaii Gas Co. personnel finished repairs on a damaged gas line and a BWS contractor repaired the road.
