The Hawaii Department of Transportation (HDOT) held a blessing ceremony to mark the opening of the rehabilitated Kipapa Stream (Roosevelt) Bridge on Kamehameha Highway in Mililani. HDOT partnered with the Central Federal Lands Highways Division (CFLHD) of the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) to complete the work on the 85-year-old bridge.
The Kipapa Stream Bridge was originally constructed in 1933 and is located between Ka Uka Boulevard and Lanikuhana Avenue. It is approximately 484-feet long and the bridge width increased from 30 feet to 36 feet which boosts safety for all users, including bicyclists and pedestrians.
Project improvements include repaving the roadway, widening the bridge to provide 7-foot shoulders in both directions, enhancing the structural capacity and seismic retrofit to meet current design standards, replacing the railings, restriping the travel lanes and increasing the vehicle weight limit from 16 tons to 40 tons.
FasTrac was instrumental in the project. FasTrac 303 Cement and FasTrac Polymer were used to repair, restore and widen this historic bridge.
