Kukuiula Bridge closed at 39.5 Mile Marker on Hana Highway

Storm water runoff has damaged the foundation of an abutment holding up the Hana side of the Kukuiula Bridge at Mile Marker 39.5 on Hana Highway, rendering the bridge unsafe for vehicle traffic, the Department of Public Works reported.

The bridge has been closed, and road closure signs have been posted in Hana, Ulupalakua and at Kukuiula Bridge.

Bridge consultants discovered damage to bridge’s scour protection footing during a routine bridge inspection this morning. Recent flooding has caused a significant amount of erosion upstream of the bridge.

Repairs are expected to take at least two months.

Motorists are advised there is no through traffic from Hana to Kula. Motorists traveling to Hana should plan to return via Keanae, Haiku and Paia.

The Department of Public Works appreciates the public’s patience and understanding while bridge repairs are ongoing.
