Work continues on School Street sink hole

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - City contractor MIRA Image Construction continues work Monday on emergency repair work on School Street after a sink hole last Monday created an opening in the road near Nuuanu Avenue.

One westbound lane on School Street will be continuously open from Nuuanu Avenue to Aala Street and the H-1 freeway until the work is completed on Thursday.

The sink hole did not break a sewer pipe, but it did damage an adjacent manhole and concrete vault.

Crews removed debris inside the sewer tunnel caused by the sink hole and repaired the top portion of the chamber. Construction of a 12-inch cleanout structure and manhole repairs will continue through the next three nights.
