HA‘ENA — Over the years, numerous hikers have been stranded on one side of the Hanakapi‘ai Stream which can flood within minutes. Plans to build a bridge crossing the stream were first assessed in 2013, and now, seven years later, the project is moving forward with all the assessments and permitting approved.
