Damaged Kauai bypass road repaired and reopened


The state Department of Transportation says the south leg of the Kapaa Temporary Bypass Road on Kauai was reopened at 9:30 p.m. Thursday, four days ahead of schedule. 

The road had been closed in both directions from Kuhio Highway to Olohena Road since Monday after heavy rains and floods undermined a 36-inch drainage culvert. 

Work crews removed the damaged drainage system from beneath the road surface, installed a new 42-inch culvert and repaved the affected section.
