Emergency vehicles, first responders, and TheBus have been notified of the roadwork and will be allowed through the closure. Roadwork is weather permitting.

The Hawaii Department of Transportation (HDOT) Highways Division, in partnership with the Central Federal Lands Highway Division (CFLHD) of the Federal Highway Administration, announced the beginning of the Kipapa Stream Bridge (Roosevelt) project. This project will improve the structural capacity, seismic retrofit, travel surface, and railings of the existing Roosevelt Bridge. More information can be found at https://flh.fhwa.dot.gov/projects/hi/roosevelt/

Roosevelt Bridge is located between the highway’s intersection with Ka Uka Boulevard and its intersection with Lanikuhana Avenue. It is approximately 484-feet long, 34-feet wide, and was originally constructed in 1933.

The rehabilitation project will bring the bridge up to current design standards for roadway width, load capacity, bridge railing and transitions, and bridge approaches and will widen the bridge to provide a 7-foot shoulder lane on both sides.

The $14.9 million project is funded with 80 percent federal and 20 percent state highways funds. It is anticipated to be complete by early 2018, weather permitting.

Six full closures of Roosevelt Bridge are anticipated to take place on weekends between May and December of 2017. The first full closure is currently scheduled for Friday, May 5, 2017, through Monday, May 8, 2017. Electronic Message Signs will be setup prior to closure and a reminder will be sent out in the HDOT weekly lane closure reports to notify the public. After that weekend, traffic across the bridge will be contraflowed periodically with one lane closures.

Lane closure information associated with this work will also be available on the HDOT website at hidot.hawaii.gov and released through our social media channels on Facebook and Twitter.
