Crews continue to repair water main breaks in Waikiki and Ewa Beach

Honolulu Board of Water Supply crews continue to repair a water main break along Kuhio Avenue in Waikiki.

All lanes of Kuhio Avenue from Olohana to Kaiolu will be closed tonight as crews repair the 16-inch main at 2112 Kuhio Avenue. Traffic heading eastbound on Kuhio will need to turn right at Olohana and traffic going westbound on Kuhio will need to turn right at Kaiolu. Traffic coming from Ala Wai to Kuhio on Launiu will only be able to turn left onto Kuhio. Kalaimoku will be closed from Kalakaua to Kuhio.

Partial water service has been restored to the two apartment-condominium complexes via a bypass. Affected customers may experience low or sporadic water pressure throughout the evening. Customers are asked to use water sparingly until repair is completed and water is restored completely.

The Waikiki water main break was first reported at about 10 a.m. today.

At 2:30 p.m. today, BWS crews also responded to a 12-inch water main break near 91-526 Ewa Beach Rd. near Fort Weaver Road. Approximately seven houses are impacted.

Updates are available via the Board of Water Supply’s social media accounts on Twitter and Facebook @BWSHonolulu.
