TRAFFIC ADVISORY: Kapiolani Boulevard Water System Improvement Project Update (Week of 9/14)

RMY Construction, Inc., the contractor for Board of Water Supply’s (BWS) water system improvement project in the McCully area, continues their work to install a new 12-inch water main on Kapiolani Boulevard. Motorists are advised to expect the following traffic modifications:

Monday, September 14, to Friday, September 18, from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

- The right and center lanes of Kapiolani Boulevard, between Isenberg Street and Hoawa Street, will be closed in the Ewa-bound direction

- Roving lane closures will be in effect on Kapiolani Boulevard, between Isenberg Street and Paani Street, in the Diamond Head-bound direction

The indicated lane closures are weather permitting and may be modified based on project needs.

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.

Motorists are advised to use alternate routes during construction hours, if possible, and to allow for additional travel time. Drivers that must travel through the work area are asked to please abide by posted traffic signs.

The BWS encourages the community to visit for weekly project updates and traffic patterns or call 748-5310 to hear a voice recording of the information.
