HONOLULU – The Hawaiʻi Department of Transportation (HDOT) is notifying Oʻahu motorists that vehicular traffic will be shifted from the old Kaipāpaʻu Bridge in Hauula back to the temporary bridge on Friday, Sept. 8, as waterline work will be completed. During the shift, pedestrian and vehicular traffic will not be impacted.

The Kaipāpaʻu Bridge Replacement Project includes the construction of a new bridge, relocation of water and electrical routes, and stream bank stabilization improvements.
