HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Repairs are still ongoing for the 24-inch water main break in Waikiki, the Board of Water Supply said in an update on Thursday.

Crews repaired a valve to a 16-inch main on Kuhio Avenue, which is part of the 24-inch main break.

One lane was closed in each direction of Kuhio Avenue between Kaiulani Avenue and Liliokalani Avenue for the valve repair but it has since been reopened.

However, all lanes remain closed on Kuhio Avenue between Paoakalani Avenue and Ohua Avenue for repairs to the 24-inch main break.

Approximately 17 services will be affected during the valve repair.

The break was reported around 4 p.m. on Tuesday.
