Paumalu — HDOT is moving forward with improvements to the Paumalu Stream Bridge (Kamehameha Highway, near Sunset Beach) in order to lift weight restrictions as soon as possible.

The bridge, originally constructed in 1929, last underwent reinforcement of concrete supports in November 2014. Damage discovered during a recent inspection prompting the weight limit to be reduced from 25 to 15 tons. A temporary structure beneath the bridge will take the load off the columns and help support the bridge. The work is anticipated to be finished in two months, weather permitting.
