DOT extends emergency repair work in Hauula

Roads along Hawaii’s shoreline face danger from high surf and heavy rain . . .

. . . the DOT said rain was to blame for the collapse and extended the repairs to fix about 1,500 feet of crumbling highway.

“Thirty years ago, we actually had a beach [down there], and the road was perfect there were no problems,” said Hauula resident Brad Heder. “But after the 30 years, the tides been getting high and everything is just falling.”
