KAILUA, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The Board of Water Supply re-opened Keolu Drive at 7 p.m. Saturday, after completing repairs to a broken 12-inch main on Keolu Drive near Keolu Elementary School.

A massive sinkhole in Kailua had shut down Keolu Drive in both directions, officials said Friday.

The ground in front of the Keolu Elementary school had caved in due to a water main break.

The main broke Friday, shortly before 1 p.m. Crews worked overnight to repair the main, but it broke again at about 5:30 a.m.

Crews worked again to restore water service by 1 p.m Saturday. After that, a BWS contractor finished repaving the road at 7 p.m.
