Kawaikapu Bridge Finally Opens on East End
After almost four years of work, Kawaikapu Bridge on the East End is finally wrapping up construction. The project began in April 2004 and was scheduled to be finished in August of 2005. Due to several set backs including poor planning, lack of materials, and undependable weather, construction of the approximately 30 ft bridge took nearly as long as contractors spent building San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge. Nov. 2 marked the official opening date of the new bridge.
