PREVIOUS COVERAGE

Dillingham Boulevard remained closed Thursday afternoon between Mokauea Street and Puuhale Road because of downed utility poles, police said.

Bill Brennan, spokesman for Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transit, confirmed that a dump truck belonging to a rail contractor, Nan Inc., “snagged some overhead wires and four utility poles fell down.”

The city hired Nan under a contract for up to $400 million to relocate the utility lines along the last 4.1 miles of the rail line.

Police said they received a call at 8:47 a.m. today of wires on the road and a downed telephone pole.

Officers were still in the area about 3:30 p.m. as utility company crews conducted the repair work. A police update at 6:13 p.m. said all eastbound lanes on Dillingham remained closed between Mokauea Street and Puuhale Road.

There was no estimated time of completion, a police dispatch supervisor said.
