KAKAAKO (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Some 2,500 families and 400 businesses will be affected by a series of overnight power outages planned for Kakaako, Iwilei and Ala Moana.

The outages are part of a $1.5 million project aimed at boosting service reliability, Hawaiian Electric said.

The work will start Monday and run through Aug. 2. Outages are planned Mondays through Thursdays, from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m.

While some customers will be affected by multiple outages, Hawaiian Electric said, no one will be without power every night.

Officials said the work will begin in Iwilei and proceed to Kakaako and Ala Moana.

Affected residents and businesses were alerted about the outages in advanced.
