kapiolani lane closures

As part of the Board of Water Supply’s (BWS) on-going water system improvement project on Kapiolani Boulevard, the contractor is continuing installation work on a new 12-inch water main.

Motorists are advised to expect the following traffic modifications from 8:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, Aug. 22:

  • The closure of two Diamond Head-bound lanes of Kapiolani Boulevard at the McCully Street intersection;
  • The left turn lane into Waikiki from the Ewa-bound direction of Kapiolani Boulevard at the McCully Street intersection will be modified; and
  • The closure of one mauka-bound lane of McCully Street at the Kapiolani Boulevard intersection.

The contractor is replacing 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.
