Shoreline protection and road work underway
A look at the progress on the Aua retaining wall project being carried out by Happy Trucking and Construction Company, and paid for by the Federal Highway Administration. The retaining wall is being constructed at the mouth of the stream at the Aua Bridge on the beach side between the Danielson residence and the Scanlan home.
The retaining wall has been erected smack in the middle of a huge sandy area that is frequented by village kids on hot days and is nearing completion according to an official from the Department of Public Works, which is managing the project. "Our main goal with these shoreline projects is to save the roads from erosion." He added, “The roads are being eaten away and we need to stop that from happening."
The retaining wall is one of three projects listed under the ongoing Aua Shoreline Protection Program that also includes rock revampment work several yards away, and shoreline and drainage work at the village’s fautasi boatshed located across from the Liufau residence.
MAC DOW EXECUTING A QUICK FIX
McConnell Dowell is giving a “quick fix” to the area from the turn-in next to the former NAPA Auto Parts Store extending several feet past the turn-in to Coleman Elementary School to provide relief to the hundreds of motorists and cyclists who travel that stretch of the road on a daily basis.
Motorists have long complained about the poor conditions of that particular section of the road, which can and has been likened to the infamous Airport Road prior to the recent patch up work there, which was also carried out by McConnell Dowell.
