Kamaaha Avenue in Kapolei reopens after gas line repair


    Kamaaha Avenue between Kealanani and Kuloa avenues, highlighted in red, was closed Thursday due to a broken gas line.

UPDATE: 6 a.m.

Kamaaha Avenue, between Kealanani Avenue and Kuloa Avenue, has been reopened.


The intersection of Kamaaha Avenue and Kuloa Avenue in Kapolei is expected to be closed into tonight as repairs are made to a broken gas line.

The Honolulu Fire Department said crews from Hawaii Gas are on the scene and working on repairs after a construction crew hit a synthetic gas line this morning.

“This will not be a simple fix,” said Capt. Scot Seguirant. Fire department units arrived at the scene at 9:35 a.m. and isolated the area of the gas leak, he said. Random sampling conducted by the fire department indicates the air quality is safe outside of what has been shut down, he said.

There have been no injuries or impact beyond traffic, Seguirant said.

Traffic into nearby Kapolei Elementary School had to be adjusted because of the road closure, and motorists are advised to seek alternate routes.
