KILAUEA (KHNL) -- Work on the Kilauea Bridge replacement project on Kauai is underway.
The existing one-lane bridge, built over the Kilauea stream in 1913, has deteriorated and is being replaced.
The bridge will be closed starting March 5 for the duration of the project. Traffic will be re-routed to the main entrance to Kilauea town via Kolo Road.
The new two-lane concrete bridge will span 102 feet long, 35 feet wide and will have a weight limit of 20 tons.
