A Board of Water Supply contractor is scheduled to close two lanes at a time on South King Street at the Ward Avenue intersection beginning Monday, March 25, to replace distribution pipeline and appurtenances.
Roadwork will be conducted Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The contractor will be replacing a 12-inch waterline installed in 1963, and an 8-inch waterline installed in 1959.
The work is being conducted as part of the ongoing Water System Improvement Project on Ward Avenue from Kinau Street to Kapiolani Boulevard. This project will improve fire protection, help to reduce the likelihood of emergency water main breaks, and enhance water service to residents and businesses in the area. Barring any unforeseen circumstances, the work on South King Street is expected to last approximately three weeks.
Motorists are advised to please try to use alternate routes if possible. Drivers traveling through the construction area are asked to please abide by posted traffic signs and allow for additional travel time.
