Water main break opens sinkhole at intersection of Kapiolani Blvd. and Kaheka St.


The Board of Water Supply has completed the repair of a broken 8-inch water main and restored the roadway on Kapiolani Boulevard near the Kaheka Street intersection.

All lanes on Kapiolani Boulevard were reopened at about 7:30 p.m. Sunday.

The main burst around midnight Sunday.

From viewer photos sent into KHON2 from the surrounding buildings, a large sinkhole formed in the street.

This came during the Kamehameha Day weekend and the Pan-Pacific Festival that include events at Ala Moana Center and Waikiki.

1601 Kapiolani Boulevard was the only building that lost water service.
