UMAUMA, Hawaii – A look at the ongoing repair work on Highway 19 going over the Umauma Stream Bridge, taken from the point of view of a driver. Orange cones squeeze two lanes of traffic into one lane, going in one direction.
The state Department of Transportation says the alternating lane closures will continue this week, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Travel speed over the bridge has been reduced to 25 MPH and vehicle weight limited to 25 tons. Hawaii DOT says all trucks heavier than 25 tons must use Kauniho Road, Old Mamalahoa Highway and Leopolino Road as a detour route.
