A small bridge at the bottom of Diamond Head Road is in need of repair — and when we say small, we’re talking about a span of only 14 feet.

The concrete underneath it, however, is wearing away, so the city will dish out nearly $374,000 to get the span repaired.

“We expect it to be finished by mid August,” said Robert Kroning, director of the Design and Construction Dept., “and the traffic between 8:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. is when they’re going to be able to work.

“We expect no more than one lane closed at a time. There will be flagmen out directing traffic,” he said.

The work could get started within the week and should last about two-and-a-half months.
