Ke Ala Hele Makalae Coastal Path Progress – Lydgate Park to Lihi Park – February 2011

Updated: Dec 29, 2023

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

New estimated completion near June 2011.

All of the Acrow sections have been installed and construction equipment is utilizing it to complete the bridge, though the final surface isn't there. Currently only the motor vehicle lanes are done and the bicycle & pedestrian section will be cantilevered further out on the makai side. These two photos (above and below) show each end of the bridge where, off in the distance, you can see metal braces aligned with the concrete foundations.

A closer look at the north end (above) where one cantilever brace is installed. The concrete foundation next to it is where the pedestrian portion will continue to slope down toward street level.

This sloped section (above) has its foundation structurally finished and the lava rock veneer is being attached. Forms are being placed for the surface section of concrete.

This view (above) is looking south from the completed driveway of the parking lot at the Kuamoo Road intersection. Note the gecko impressions on the left piece of concrete. Reinforcing bars are wired in ready for the concrete pour to complete the surface between the driveway and Acrow bridge.

Looking north from the same driveway (above), the path jogs left to run alongside Kuhio Highway. The vertical rebars on the left are for the concrete guardrail between the highway and the path.
