Woodlawn Drive Bridge Stream Project Update – January 23, 2019

Aloha Kauʻiokahaloa Nui residents and Neighbors,

We hope each of you had a safe and happy holiday season. We wanted to provide an updated on the Mānoa Stream Improvements at the Woodlawn Drive Bridge project. Due to unforeseen circumstances, the project is now (tentatively) expected to be completed in October 2019. It’s original end month was May 2019 when work started in August 2018.

The Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR) delayed the project after sediment was removed under and downstream of the bridge. That’s when it was discovered that the existing drainage structures were not built as shown in the reference plans.

DLNR is revising the project, which may include additional dredging. The contractor will perform minor work during the next several months as the revisions are made. The in-stream dredging work is expected to resume by May 2019.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at lachman@hawaii.edu. You may also call Joseph Hart, Project Construction Manager, at (808) 216-4918, or e-mail at joseph@hcahawaii.com.

Thank you everyone for your patience,

Andy Lachman
University Housing Manager
