HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Crews were responding Friday night to a ruptured water main and sinkhole on Kamehameha Highway in Hauula.

The sinkhole had closed both lanes of the highway.

Police said the 30-inch water main ruptured just after 7 p.m.

The Board of Water Supply said the break caused “severe road damage” between Punaluu Valley Road and Green Valley Road in Punaluu.

As of 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, there is one town-bound lane open and a contraflow in place.
