TRAFFIC ALERT: Emergency repair work closes lane of Kamehameha Hwy. in Kaneohe

KANEOHE, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Hawaiian Telcom emergency repair work has forced crews to shut down a lane of Kamehemaha Highway in Kaneohe near Windward Mall.

The far right, town-bound lane will be closed between Lilipuna Road and Mehana Street near Zippy’s so that crews can repair a damaged underground cable.

Technicians are working around the clock to replace a 3,000-pair cable, which must be accessed through three manholes. They will then complete more than 12,000 individual splices once the new cable is placed.

Repairs are scheduled to be completed by Oct. 27 if rain doesn’t cause more delays.
