HONOLULU (KHON2) — The makai-bound lanes on Waiakamilo Road are currently closed near Hart Street.
According to Hawaii Gas, a contractor struck a gas line in the area at around 12:15 p.m. Crews arrived on site to isolate the leak and are now making repair work.
Hawaii Gas said repairs should take about three to four hours.
The gas line was a 1-inch steel pipe that feeds gas to the local Kalihi area. Businesses in the area have voluntarily evacuated.
