HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

A 24/7 lane closure on Kapiolani Boulevard is set to go into effect Friday as crews work to install an underground pipe, the Board of Water Supply said.

BWS said a contractor needs the far left Diamond Head-bound lane closed, between University Avenue and Date Street.

The lane closure will last for several weeks.

The construction method requires the entire 400-foot length of the pipe be installed as a continuous piece, BWS said.

An additional lane will be closed Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. to make way for construction equipment.
