Da Shadow: Kapaa 1-lane cane haul bridge, Kapahi Park

Editor’s note: Old-timers might still remember the introduction from The Shadow radio program: “Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men? The Shadow knows!” Jerome Freitas, a retired state Department of Transportation worker who is now better known as Da Shadow, since 2004 has been meeting with government representatives about problems he has discovered or that have been reported to him, and reporting the county’s responses.

One-way bridge on cane haul road between Kuhio Highway and the Kapa‘a roundabout — The bridge over the stream on the one-way cane haul road between Kuhio Highway and the Kapa‘a roundabout is showing signs of considerable wear and tear. There are cracks in the two-wheel tracks and a considerable sag toward the middle. Are there any plans to deal with this before it gives way and leads to even greater congestion in Kapaa?

The Kapaa Bypass Road falls under the jurisdiction of the state Department of Transportation. As such, the state DOT would need to respond to this question.

Kapahi Park — What is the status of the renovations to the restroom for Americans with Disabilities Act compliance, and to repair the roof?

The Kapahi Park restroom is ADA compliant. The county Department of Parks and Recreation recently executed a contract to repair the roof. That work is expected to begin this fall.
