HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - Two lanes of Farrington Highway in the town-bound direction were closed in Waianae on Friday morning because of a sinkhole.

The sinkhole, reported near the Farrington Highway intersection with Kaupuni St., developed while repaving work was being conducted in the area.

Authorities say one town-bound lane is being contra-flowed around the work area, and a single Makaha-bound lane is open at this time.

Board of Water Supply crews are working to repair the sinkhole. Motorists are advised to avoid the area if possible.
