Crews repair water main break in Waikiki

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Board of Water Supply (BWS) crews are working to repair an 8-inch water main break on Helumoa Road off Lewers Street in Waikiki. Crews have isolated the break and have installed a bypass that has restored water service to businesses in the area.

Helumoa Road has been closed for the repairs. Motorists are advised to exercise caution when traveling near the area and to use alternate routes where possible. Repairs are expected to continue through the afternoon and into the early evening.

The 8-inch water main was originally installed in 1971. An update will be provided when more information becomes available.
