ORIGINAL STORY:
Board of Water Supply (BWS) crews are working to repair a leak to an 8-inch waterline on Ward Avenue near Hawaiian Electric Company.

Repairs to the waterline have resulted in the closure of the two makai bound lanes of Ward Avenue between South King Street and Kapiolani Boulevard. One mauka bound lane is being contra-flowed to allow for one traffic lane in each direction. Special duty HPD officers are assisting with traffic flow.

No customers are without water service. The waterline was installed in 1975. The leak was discovered during work for the BWS Water System Improvement Project on Ward Avenue, however the leak was not caused by this construction work.

Motorists are advised to exercise caution when driving through the work area and to use alternate routes where possible.
