Crew at Work to Reduce Pooling at Pahoa Road Residences – Two Dry Wells to Be Installed

A Big Island construction crew is currently working to install two dry wells along Pāhoa Rd. Ludwig Construction Inc, which has been contracted by the county of Hawai‘i, has control of the project, and aims to reduce pooling fronting two Pāhoa Rd. residences.

The dry well work, which began in January, was recently suspended to allow time for the contractor to cast concrete components; digging is scheduled to start again at the Pāhoa Rd. sites on Monday, February 11, weather permitting. Work is expected to continue through February and be completed on March 4, 2013, though this timetable may be impacted by inclement weather. Crews will be active from 7:30am-3:30pm on weekdays, and will post flagmen if any one-lane road closures are necessary.
