Repair work for a section of Kahiliholo Road damaged by the April flood is projected to begin the first week of September, with construction to be completed by the end of the November.

“We would like to thank the residents of the area for your patience and understanding during this process,” said Mayor Bernard Carvalho Jr. “This project would not have been possible without our federal, state, county, and community partners who all worked together since the devastating rain in April.”

The scope of the work will include installing a concrete box culvert at a stream crossing of Kahiliholo Road, to replace a corrugated metal pipe that was washed away during the record-breaking flood. The work also includes replacement of the roadway embankment and pavement within the area of the culvert.

On June 25, representatives with the Federal Emergency Management Agency inspected the damaged section of Kahiliholo Road and later approved it for FEMA Public Assistance, which would make it eligible for 75 percent reimbursement.

The project will be out to bid within this week.
