Wayne Yoshioka, director of the Department of Transportation Services, sent the following message:
"...Because of the bridge problem on Farrington Highway , buses cannot proceed to their normal turnaround at Makau Street . They have no choice but to turn around earlier and Upena Street is, unfortunately, the best turnaround without taking the buses too much off their route.
Buses will be off of Upena Street as soon as the bridge issue is resolved. We will send a message to TheBus to make sure drivers are extra careful when they drive through the neighborhood. I will keep you updated."
