A water main break on Date Street between Lukepane and Ekela avenues shortly before 1 p.m. Tuesday has closed the Mo'ili'ili area roadway, police said.

"We have our troubleshooter there now, and he's trying to shut off the water," said Su Shin, spokeswoman for the Board of Water Supply. "And after that our crews will get there, and they'll begin work on the main repair."

In the meantime, police say traffic is being rerouted to Olokele Avenue, onto Winam Avenue and back to Makaleka Avenue, and vice versa.

It was not immediately clear when Date might be reopened to traffic.
