Kawailii Stream Bridge

Construction on Kaiwailii Stream Bridge is moving forward and completion is expected at the end of summer.  Replacement of the bridge became necessary after it was damaged in the Kiholo Bay earthquake of October 15, 2006.  The contract was awarded a year ago to Hawaiian Dredging for $4.399 million and will involve historic documentation and demolition of the existing bridge, constructing a replacement concrete bridge with seismic upgrades, making improvements to roadway approaches, installing new guardrails and bike railings, and removing the temporary detour road.
