As of 5:30 a.m. on Friday, Dec. 16, Kaʻahumanu Ave at Puʻunēnē Ave was limited to ONE lane of travel.

Due to a water main break, two east bound lanes at Kaʻahumanu Avenue in front of Burger King are closed until further notice.

As a result, water service may be disrupted for some customers. So far the Kahului Airport, Walmart and Zippy’s are reporting no water as of 6:15 a.m.. Crews are working on repairs.
