BWS repairs water main break on Liliha St.

LILIHA, Oahu (HawaiiNewsNow) - All lanes of Liliha Street at Bates Street have been reopened after Board of Water Supply crews completed repairs to a 12-inch water main break.

BWS said water was restored at 10 p.m. Wednesday, about eight hours after the break happened.

Earlier, police closed mauka-bound lanes of Liliha Street due to the break.

Water began gushing up from under the street around 2 p.m., forcing police to block traffic in both directions between Judd and Bates Streets.
