MidWeek Islander (East Oahu) - - EAST OAHU ISLANDER - By JES­SICA GOOLSBY

Work is un­der way on the Kala­ni­anaole High­way sewer im­prove­ment project from Niu Val­ley to Wailupe Beach Park and along the Ka­hala Beach coast­line.

The $9.2 mil­lion project, which be­gan May 11, af­fects traf­fic along “sewer line B,” where lanes are closed Mon­days at 8 p.m. east­bound and at 6 p.m. Mon­days and 7 p.m. Fri­days west­bound. Com­ple­tion is ex­pected by April 2011.

“We’re ful­fill­ing our prom­ise to re­pair our long-ne­glected sewer sys­tem and waste­water treat­ment plants with these ma­jor cap­i­tal in­vest­ments,” Mayor Han­ne­mann said. “ These projects are con­structed with the money that is col­lected in sewer fees. We will con­tinue to de­vote our re­sources to im­prov­ing our over­all is­land in­fra­struc­ture with projects like this.”

The Kala­ni­anaole project will re­ha­bil­i­tate ap­prox­i­mately 7,400 feet of 24and 30-inch pipe with curedin-place pipe (CIPP) lin­ing; im­prove about 1,700 feet of 8-inch and 10-inch di­am­e­ter pipe with CIPP lin­ing; re­vi­tal­ize 19 man­holes with epoxy lin­ers; mod­ify the en­trance and exit man­holes and in­stall a new liner in the Wailupe Stream in­verted siphon to im­prove the flush­ing ac­tion for clean­ing; re­place 29 sewer man­hole cones/frames and cov­ers; and clean 11,800 feet of 24, 30-and 36-inch pipe.
