Ke Ala Hele Makalae Coastal Path Progress – Lydgate Park to Lihi Park – August 2010

Our Friend of the Path, Richard Sugiyama, provides historical perspectives on the construction of Ke Ala Hele Makalae over the years.

The most noticeable item completed is the crossing at the driveway entrance to the southern end of Wailua Beach. This is looking north with Kuhio Highway to the left and the ocean to the right.

Looking south toward the river and bridge construction.

Right now, it's hard to imagine what the path will look like leading up to the "train bridge."

Gecko images have been cast into the edges of the crossing.

Sub-surface drilling is still going on. There is no hard foundation or path surface here yet.

The view from the beach up the Wailua River under the bridge.

It appears concrete pouring forms are being built at the ends of the cantilever supports.

This photo was taken looking south between the two bridges. Off in the distance on the opposite bank you can see the remains of an old concrete footing from the first bridge that crossed Wailua River.
