Traffic Alert: Repairs continue on Aiea Bridge

AIEA, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Repairs on the Aiea Pedestrian Bridge near Aloha Stadium continue through the weekend.

On Friday and Saturday crews from the state Department of Transportation (DOT) will close H-1 Freeway off-ramps to Aiea in both directions (Exits 13A) and the Moanalua Freeway westbound Aiea off-ramp from 8:30 a.m. until 3 p.m., daily, while crews install new steel railings on the bridge and perform additional work.

A truck hauling a forklift struck the overpass two weeks ago, causing a five-ton chunk to fall down.

DOT engineers have inspected the bridge section and determined that it remains structurally sound and will be rehabilitated and reused. 

The pedestrian overpass is expected to reopen on Tuesday, November 6.

Tibbits Trucking will be paying for these repairs.

Drivers are urged to seek alternate routes in Aiea.
