KAKAAKO, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

A 12-inch water main that broke Tuesday morning in Kakaako has been repaired, but a stretch of Queen Street will remain closed until crews finish repairing the roadway, the Board of Water Supply said. 

The water main break happened around 4:15 a.m., impacting eight businesses in the area, the Board of Water Supply said. However, water was restored to all customers at around 2:30 a.m. Wednesday. 

Queen Street will remain closed in both directions, between Cooke and Coral streets, while crews work to repair the roadway. BWS expects repairs to be completed sometime in the morning. 

The city asks any motorists to stay clear of the area and take alternate routes to work.
