The Hawaii State Department of Transportation (DOT) Karsten Thot Bridge Repair Project will begin in February 2015 and take 13 months to complete. The scope of work entails the repair of the deteriorated steel bridge framing, railings and connections, and the concrete cracks and spalls in the concrete deck slab and abutments. The bridge will also be repainted.
The work on the bridge will require one lane closures from Sunday to Thursday nights from 9:00 p.m. – 5:00 a.m. There will also be a full closure of the bridge for a maximum of six nights, with no more than 3 consecutive nights Sunday to Thursday from 9:00 p.m. to 4:00 a.m.
The timeline for the scheduled work and full closure of the bridge will be provided by the contractor, who will be required to notify the public, including nearby residents and businesses, the Honolulu Police Department, the Honolulu Fire Department, the Emergency Services Department, Oahu Transit Services, the Department of Transportation Services and the military bases.
Due to scaffolding needed for the repair of the overhead portion of the bridge at the beginning of the project, there will be a height restriction of 12’0” for approximately 6 months.
A State Department of Transportation public informational meeting is scheduled for:
