Water main break forces lane closure on Kamehameha Highway in Kaneohe

KANEOHE (HawaiiNewsNow) - Board of Water Supply crews are working to repair a 30-inch water main break on Kamehameha Highway between Kapalai Road and Hoene Place in Kaneohe. The break was reported at about 12:30 p.m. Friday.

The right, Heeia-bound lane of Kamehameha Highway will be closed in the area for the duration of the repair, which is expected to continue overnight.

Motorists are advised to expect delays and to use alternate routes if possible.

The 30-inch water main is a transmission line which does not directly serve residential customers so water service to customers has not been affected.
