Project Management Section

The Project Management team works on projects to protect the public's health, safety, and property, as well as the environment, through proper planning. Currently, our team is working on projects that utilize the Capital Improvement Program (CIP), Safe Routes to School (SRTS) Program, and Hawaii's Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP).
Below are some of the projects that are currently in production:

Kōloa Bridge Repair

This Project will rehabilitate Kōloa Bridge by repairing the road surface, which will be repaved and restriped within the area of the bridge as well as immediately before and after the bridge. This rehabilitation also plans to fix spalls and delamination to prevent further loss of the exposed steel reinforcement, bring the bridge strength up to current standards by repairing and augmenting the beams, and add guardrails on the west and east sides of the bridge’s mauka-side wall.

Niumalu Bridge

This Project will improve the safety for vehicles crossing the one-lane bridge at Pū‘ali Stream near Nāwiliwili Harbor as the current bridge is heavily spalled with a large amount of section loss in the exposed reinforcing steel. This improve will include rehabilitation of the existing, damaged concrete bridge deck that will match the original bridge in design, color, texture, and other visual qualities. New bridge ends will be constructed on dry land behind the existing ends and the new bridge deck will span over the existing ends. The existing ends will remain as-is.

Safe Routes to School Improvements: Kalāheo Elementary School

The Project plans to provide a safe route to Kalaheo Elementary School by reconstructing an ADA sidewalk on Puʻu Road from Papalina Road to Maka Road as well as constructing a new sidewalk along Hokua Road. It also aims to provide well-marked pedestrian crossings at key intersections, retain existing drainage patterns and on-street parking, and improve pedestrian access from remote drop-offs that reduce traffic congestion at the school.

Waimea Levee Repair

The Waimea levee was constructed in 1954 to protect the Waimea town from flooding from the Waimea River during large storms. The Waimea levee system includes outlets with flap gates to allow rainwater to drain from the town area into the Waimea River when the elevation of the river is lower than the elevation of the water in the drainage system behind the levee while also preventing the water from the river to flow into the Waimea Town drainage system. The levee outlets are also provided with sluice gates to allow the Waimea Town drainage system to be isolated manually from the Waimea River. Currently, the outlet for the Kealii Canal to the Waimea levee is inoperable, therefore this project aims to repair the sluice gates to help reduce flooding.
