Posted on Jul 27, 2016 in Latest News

HONOLULU — The Hawaii Department of Transportation (HDOT) alerts the public that the 24/7 lane closure on the Paumalu Stream Bridge has been removed as of Wednesday, July 27, 2016. The Paumalu Stream Bridge on Kamehameha Highway is located between Paumalu Place and Ke Nui Road, near Sunset Beach.

HDOT began repairing the Paumalu Stream Bridge in May 2016 to ensure its integrity. The installation of the Acrow truss structure has been substantially completed, allowing the 24/7 lane closure to be lifted.

The remaining repairs to the bridge require a northbound lane closure on Kamehameha Highway that will occur during daytime non-peak traffic hours. Traffic will be contraflowed through the remaining open lane with flaggers on both sides of the bridge to assist traffic flow. Emergency vehicles will be given priority access. All roadwork is weather permitting. The lane closures are as follows:

  • Thursday, July 28, 2016 and Friday, July 29, 2016 from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.
  • Monday, Aug. 1, 2016 through Friday, Aug. 5, 2016 from 7 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
  • Monday, Aug. 8, 2016 through Friday. Aug. 12, 2016 from 7 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

The weight restriction of 25 tons continues until further notice.

HDOT will continue to alert the public of lane closures at http://hidot.hawaii.gov/highways/roadwork/oahu/. HDOT thanks the community for its patience as we make the necessary repairs to the Paumalu Stream Bridge.
