Hawaiian Electric crews will be performing emergency repair work requiring an overnight outage starting late Thursday that will affect several businesses and condominiums in the Ala Moana area.
The outage will take place at 11 p.m. Thursday and continue through 7 a.m. Friday. Repair crews will be working in a manhole on Kona Street that serves several commercial businesses including Walmart and Sam’s Club, as well as condominium towers.
“We apologize to customers who will be inconvenienced by this emergency repair work,” said Jim Alberts, senior vice president of customer service for Hawaiian Electric. “We scheduled overnight work in order to minimize the impact on those affected and we hope this advance notice will enable customers to plan around it.”
The circuit that must be de-energized serves commercial businesses and condo towers in the Ala Moana area, including the makai end of Keeaumoku Street to the HMSA building, the ewa expansion of Ala Moana Center and four condominiums: One Ala Moana, Waihonua, Moana Pacific and Hawaiki Tower.
The outage will not affect traffic lights or street lights in the area.
The work was prompted by an outage Friday night that was caused by an underground cable fault.
