Two weeks ago the city announced it had finished repaving Waialae Avenue in Kaimuki.

On Friday KHON2 noticed part of the newly paved road is once again sunken in between Kapahulu Avenue and Saint Louis Drive.

The city is aware of this and it appears the contractor has asked the various utilities to mark where their underground lines and pipes are located before they work on this area.

Waialae Avenue has had a problem with so-called soft spots.

The city spent more than $11 million to re-pave the roadway.
