All lanes of Ward avenue are back open, but the work to fix a sinkhole isn’t finished yet.

Crews plan to continue work at 8:30 a.m. Friday.

During that time all lanes of Ward Avenue will be closed between Green and Lunalilo streets.

The sinkhole was discovered Thursday afternoon.

City officials say the sinkhole appears to be caused by a collapsed 21-inch storm drain pipe.

The work will be extensive and officials anticipate ongoing lane closures through Saturday.

Utilities have marked their respective underground lines in preparation for excavation to expose the damaged storm drain line.
