Kukuiula Bridge re-opened today, following expedited in-house work by Maui County Highways Division

The Department of Public Works Highways Division has repaired the Hana side bridge abutment of Kukuiula Bridge in East Maui. The bridge reopened at noon today and is now safe for motorists to cross.

The Department of Public Works appreciates the public’s patience and understanding while the bridge was closed for repairs. Because work was done in-house by the DPW Highways Division, the bridge repairs took approximately 19 days, including consultations with the bridge consultant and construction work.

Storm water runoff damaged the foundation of an abutment holding up the Hana side of the bridge, located at Mile Marker 39.5 on Hana Highway. The bridge was closed June 1 after consultants determined the extent of storm damage and found it was unsafe for vehicles to cross.

The original estimate for the bridge closure was at least two months. That would have been the amount of time required if the project were bid out to an outside contractor.
