Expect delays along Kapiolani Blvd due to maintenance repairs next week

A Board of Water Supply crews are scheduled to begin water maintenance repairs along Kapiolani Boulevard from McCully Street to Date Street starting Monday, March 31.

Roadwork will occur Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and will involve lane closures at various locations throughout the work area.

Crews will replace approximately 2,800 feet of 12-inch water main installed in 1938 and approximately 1,000 feet of 8-inch water main installed in 1953.

The renewal of the water system will improve fire protection, enhance water service to residents in the area, and reduce the likelihood of water main breaks.

This project will cause traffic delays for drivers using Kapiolani Boulevard. Motorists are advised to expect delays and use alternate routes during construction hours, if possible.

The project will be completed in December 2014.
