Water main break closes Waikiki roadway

WAIKIKI (HawaiiNewsNow) - Crews from the Board of Water Supply have repaired a 6-inch water main on Kalakaua Avenue.  The break was reported at 11 a.m.  No customers are affected by this break.

The break forced the closure of two westbound lanes and one eastbound lane of Kalakaua Avenue between Ala Wai Boulevard and McCully Street. These lanes will remain closed as crews work to backfill the waterline and conduct road repairs.

Motorists are advised to use alternate routes where possible.

Repairs will continue into the late evening and possibly through tomorrow morning.
