KITV4 got a look at the newly carved road to the Puna Geothermal Venture Plant through the lava-lake fed by Fissure 8. 

The road starts right off Highway 132, an area blocked by a wall of lava.

The road offers access into PGV where employees are actively trying to get the plant fully operational.

Several wells were covered by lava.

Recently that same road was made available to dozens of residents whose access to their homes was cut off for a while forcing them to hike and for some get flown in by helicopter.
