HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - The Department of Transportation Services is keeping the Waialua Beach Road bridge closed indefinitely as repairs are ongoing following recent damages from heavy rainfall and flooding.

The bridge was closed following structural inspections that found the bridge was unsafe for crossings.

It remains shut down between Goodale Avenue and Haleiwa Road. Drivers traveling between the west end of Waialua Beach Road and Haleiwa must use Goodale Avenue, Farrington Highway, Kaukonahua Road and Weed Circle as a detour.

City bus routes 76 and 83 will travel to Waialua on the regular route, then head onto the detour. Two bus stops, #2202 and #2203 have been temporarily closed.
