HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - Last month’s heavy rain that led to flooding and evacuations on Maui caused nearly $9 million worth of damage.
That number is according to the Maui Public Works Department’s request for funding.
The Department asked for $3 million dollars to repair the Kaupakalua Bridge at Peahi road. They also requested another $2.3 million to construct retaining walls and repair guardrails along Haiku Road.
Another $1.5 million is being requested for roadwork and stabilization along Awalau Road.
The county previously said at least a dozen homes were damaged or destroyed by the flooding.
Because the flooding was so severe, Gov. Ige declared a state of emergency in light of the damage on Oahu and Maui. That freed up funding to conduct emergency repairs.
