Public Informational Meeting for Kaluanui Stream Bridge Replacement Project Kamehameha Highway, Hauula, Koolauloa District

Posted on May 17, 2018 in Latest News

ONOLULU – The Hawaii Department of Transportation (HDOT) Highways Division, in coordination with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), will be holding a Public Informational Meeting to introduce this project and consult with the community under the National Environmental Policy Act, Chapter 343 HRS draft environmental assessment, and Section 106 National Historic Preservation Act consultation process.

This project involves replacement of the existing Kaluanui Stream Bridge on Kamehameha Highway (Route 83) in Hauula to meet current State and Federal design standards. The existing bridge is bordered by State land, which contains the Greater Mt. Zion Holiness Church’s private property at the north-west corner, a private owner on the south-west corner (mauka of the bridge), and private owners and a beach access path along the east side (makai of the bridge).

The existing Kaluanui Stream Bridge, originally built in 1926, consists of two 11-foot wide travel lanes with one-foot wide shoulders on both sides. The existing railings and end treatments do not meet the current highway design standards.

The proposed bridge will be a three-span structure consisting of pre-cast, prestressed solid planks and a composite concrete topping. The bridge will accommodate two 12-foot travel lanes (one lane in each direction) and 10‑foot shoulders on each side for bicycle and pedestrian use.

The meeting is scheduled at the following location and time:

June 6, 2018
6 to 8 p.m.
Hauula Civic Center
54-010 Kukuna Road, Hauula, HI 96717

The consultation meeting will be accessible for individuals with disabilities. For more information, please request an auxiliary aid or service (e.g., sign language, interpreter, specific language interpreter, designated parking, and materials in alternate format) contact Ms. Cody Aihara or Mr. George Gutierrez, Jr. at (808) 536-2626 by May 30, 2018.
