Emergency repair work needed for Kamehameha Highway in Hauula
The Hawaii Department of Transportation (HDOT) has set up a contraflow in both directions on Kamehameha Highway in Hauula due to damages to the roadway.
It was reported late Friday evening that a portion of the road just north of Pokiwai Bridge had fallen. The area is 12-feet long and the road is 6-feet above the beach. Inspection of the roadway indicates that the shoulder is undercut for approximately 20-feet in both directions.
The ocean side lane of Kamehameha Highway, just north of Pokiwai Bridge will remain closed until further notice as crews work to repair and protect the highway.
HDOT procured an emergency contractor and an update will be sent out after a site meeting is held today at 12 p.m. Repairs are anticipated to begin today or early tomorrow.
