Posted October 6, 2021, 10:34 AM HST

A partial lane closure is scheduled on Kūhi‘ō Highway in Kapa’a this afternoon to address repairs to a recent mainline water break in the area.

From 1-4 p.m., water service will be turned off along Kūhi‘ō Highway; from the Waipouli Canal to the northern access of Aleka Loop and includes Pouli Road to Kamoa Road. As a result, a partial lane closure will be in place on the eastbound lane of Kūhi‘ō Highway between Pouli Road and the northern access to Aleka Loop.

Motorists will be directed to merge onto a middle lane. Flagger personnel will be on-site to assist with traffic flow.

Customers located in the affected service area are advised to prepare for the service shutdown by taking the following steps:

  • Store water to meet your needs until water service can be restored.
  • Notify neighbors, family and friends of the service shutdown.
  • Those with faulty water heaters should ensure that their water heater does not empty during the shutdown.
  • Businesses should prepare accordingly for the service shutdown.
