HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - An accident involving a vehicle working on Honolulu's rail transit project is affecting the city's traffic cameras.

A Kiewit Infrastructure West Company subcontractor's construction vehicle struck an overhead communications line near Aloha Stadium today, cutting the fiber optics cable inside and disabling the cameras, Kiewit officials said.

Cameras covering the Central and Leeward Oahu areas are out of service due to the incident, and crews are expected to work throughout the night to make the necessary repairs.

"We understand that many commuters rely on these cameras for their traffic updates, and we are working diligently to get the needed repairs done as quickly as possible," said Kevin Rozendaal, a project manager for Kiewit. "We are sorry for any problems this may cause."

The accident reportedly occurred near the intersection of Kamehameha Highway and Honomanu Street.

Kiewit notified City officials, and inspectors were sent out to inspect the damage and to consult on a repair strategy.

No injuries were reported.
