WAILUA (HawaiiNewsNow) - Kauai officials announced Tuesday afternoon that Kuhio Highway is now reopen to drivers, after a sewer line broke this past week.

The northbound lane of Kuhio Highway and the north entrance to Leho Drive have been reopened to motorists.

Crews finished repaving Leho Drive around 2 p.m.

This portion of Kuhio Highway closed this past Thursday after a sewer line broke and spilled nearly 1,000 gallons of sewage onto the highway and the nearby Wailua River.
