Waika‘alulu Bridge Work Requires 3-Day Closure
The Waika‘alulu Bridge No.44-5 located on Pa‘auilo Mauka Road (between Ho’okahua Road and Kukuipapa Road) that was initially scheduled to be closed for repair work between 8:30 a.m. and 2 p.m., now requires a 24-hour closure beginning on Wednesday, March 8, through Friday, March 10, 2017.
During the process of removing the bridge railings, it was discovered that the extent of deterioration is worse than previously anticipated and will require replacement.
Repair work will be more involved and will require a 24-hour closure for the safety of the traveling public.
The closure will also allow bridge work to be completed in a safe and timely manner.
The bridge will re-open on Friday, March 10, approximately 2 p.m. or after the work is completed, weather and construction conditions permitting.
Motorists are advised to use alternate routes during the bridge closure.
The County of Hawai‘i Department of Public Works apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause and thanks the community for their patience and understanding.
