SALT LAKE (HawaiiNewsNow) - The state Department of Transportation (DOT) says they plan on fixing the hazardous dip on Bougainville Road as soon as possible. Maintenance crews went out to assess the problem on Tuesday afternoon and said "fixing it will be a top priority."

Dozens of drivers have been complaining that the road is unsafe and the dip is causing their cars to fly up in the air when they pass over it. The problem area is located directly in front of the Navy Hale Keiki School.

Hawaii News Now first brought you the story last Thursday after the Neighborhood Board launched a campaign to get the road repaired.

The DOT says they will rearrange their monthly maintenance schedule to fit the job in this month.
