Traffic Report


Low Bridge — Vehicle weight is restricted on the Paumalu Stream Bridge (Kamehameha Highway, located between Paumalu Place and Ke Nui Road, near Sunset Beach). The bridge was originally constructed in 1929 and underwent emergency reinforcement of concrete supports in November 2014. A recent inspection found spalling deterioration on some of the bridge’s concrete support pillars. As a precautionary measure, the bridge weight limit has been reduced from 25 to 15 tons.

The speed limit over the bridge remains 25 miles per hour and access for two-way traffic will remain normal. Vehicles weighing over 15 tons are advised to avoid traveling over the bridge. HDOT has coordinated an operational plan with the City and County of Honolulu Department of Transportation Services and Oahu Transit Services to maintain bus service to the area with reduced weight restrictions.
