Paihi Bridge Reopened

KIPAHULU, Maui (KHNL) -  Paihi Bridge has reopened after being closed for several hours Wednesday.

Erosion along Hana Highway caused officials to close the temporary bridge. County inspectors later determined the bridge to be safe and re-opened it.

Hana Highway was closed along with the Kipahulu section of Haleakala National Park.

All visitors at the park were evacuated.

This is the same section of road that was damaged in October 2006 by an earthquake.
