Kapiolani Blvd. work near completion

HONOLULU (KHNL) - A major sewer work and water pipe replacement project on Kapiolani Blvd. has been substantially completed and final repaving work is underway.

The project included rehabilitation of sewer lines that have been in place since 1923 and water mains that were installed in 1935.

"Mahalo to everyone for their patience during this project," said Mayor Mufi Hannemann. "Repairing and replacing our long-neglected infrastructure is crucial to protecting public health and safety, and I'm very pleased that this major project is now nearing final completion. We are steadily making progress on all the infrastructure work that should have been done years ago."

Kapiolani Blvd. has already been repaved between Ward Avenue and Kamakee Street and work will continue along Kapiolani to Kalakaua Avenue until Thanksgiving.

The project, which began in July 26, costs about $29 million.

Sewer work is underway along Kalakaua Avenue between Kapiolani Blvd. and the Ala Wai Canal Bridge and is expected to be completed by mid-November.
