HONOLULU (KHON2) — The Waialua Beach Road Bridge will reopen to motorists on Friday, Aug. 20, due to the completion of construction and repair work.
According to the City and County of Honolulu’s Department of Design and Construction, the bridge’s maximum load limit will be 25 tons per vehicle. Signs have been posted to notify drivers of the limit.
Officials reported the bridge suffered extensive damage during its 69 years of use. A replacement bridge will be required within the next five to seven years.
During that time, officials will design and construct a new bridge which will include a temporary bypass during construction.
