Block of Ward Avenue mauka of freeway closes again to finish sinkhole repair


    A sinkhole opened up on Ward Avenue this morning, forcing police to close the street to traffic in both directions between Green and Lunalilo streets.


    A sinkhole closed Ward Avenue, between Green and Lunalilo streets, in both directions today.

The block of Ward Avenue between Green and Lunalilo streets is closed again this morning as crews work to fill in and patch its surface following a sinkhole repair on Thursday.

Work is expected to be completed by 3:30 p.m. today, city officials said. Police will be directing traffic, and access to driveways will be limited to residents only.

On Thursday night, crews had replaced 12 feet of pipe and reopened the section of Ward Avenue with three steel plates at 9 p.m. to let traffic through, according to city spokesman Andrew Pereira.

The block of upper Ward Avenue had been closed in both directions since Thursday morning due to a sinkhole.
