REPORT OF COUNTY ENGINEER.
MARCH 31st. 190G.
To the Honorable Board of Super
County of Maui.
I havo the honor to sub
mit my third monthly report as
The work of repairing and re
constructing bridges h.as still been
the most important and expensive
in .this district. The superstruc
ture of the Oheo Bridge at Kipahu-
u has peen erected, and proper ap
proaches made which were requir
ed by raising the grade of this
bridge some three feet. Quite a
stretch of very jocky, steep road
uujoming me priagejis peen im
proved in grade and surface by re
moving rocks which were required
for use at ,this bridge, thus reduc
ing materially the cost of said
road-work. A center pior has been
constructed of concrete at Hono-
majiebrluge, but the superstruc
ture "has'been delayed owing to a
shortage of lumber of the seizes
required. A fresh shipment is ex
pected, however, any day and
jjyhn it arrives the bridge will be
completed, a similar pier has al
eo been constructed at the Helei-
keoho bridge, and this is also wait
ing for the shipment of lumber,
Sand and gravel are being collect
ed at the Kahawaihapapa .bridge
for the erection of two piers .which
will be required to replace the ,60;
foot truss. The total cost of this
work will be about $800.00, and
tlus.will reduce repairs on a bridgo

Lumber has been ordered for re-,
planking the upper Kuikuipuka
bridge at Keanae which has got
ten into a very dangeous condition
The work of laying this floor
probably finished by this time.
Tho repairing of the bolt road
through Knhikinui and Kaupo has
.been completed at a total cost, in
eluding last month, of $95.00.
The wagon-road through Kipa
hum has been pressed with nat
ural rock dressing of aa and gravel
in several places where thohauling
is heavy, which has given much
relief as no work had been done on
tnis roau lor many years.
It has been found necessary to
put in a new culvert on the new
road from Keanao toward , Kailua
where a hitherto unnoticed stream
of water has been tearing away the
road. No further expense will bo
required at this place. Tho recent
heavy rains have 111 ado it necess
ary to do considerable work in dig
ging side ditches and crosBdrains
and some re-dressing on a consider
able portion of the main road from
Hana and the branch road from
this main road to tho Nahiku
Landing where practicalg no.work
has been done since these roads
were built in '97 and 99, Tho
work of dressing the road has been
done as cheaply as possible, but in
order to save future wash-outs
particular attention has been paid
to making and clearing good-sized
ditches and cross-drains. A very
trifling expense hereafter will suf
fice to prevent any further damage.
If this work had not been done
now tho cost of repairs would .short-
y havo to be trebled.
I beg to recommend that the
branch road from the Keanae
Landing running up tho valley,
which is almost impassable for
teams on account of frequent wash
outs and very poor drainage, bo re
paired at once. This road was
built in 1899 as a howe trail and
widened by the Koolau Ditch peo
ple a little over tw.o years ago at
their expense. With this excep
tion absolutely no money has beon
spent on its maintenance since its
construction. It should be well
ditched and drained and in many
places redressed with gravel or
gravelly earth. The extent is
about two miles and tho cost will
not be less than $250.00. The
Ditch Company has kindly donat
ed tho powder that will berequired
to enlarge tho ditches and break
open quarries for top-dressing.
With the exception above noted it
will hardly ,bo possible to under
take any but tho most trivial road
work in this district .this year, as

Tho bridce at Kuhiwa Gulch,
Nahiku should be replaced by re
locating about ono quarter of t

improving the grade of tho road.
As this would entail an expense of
some $1500.00, 1 hesitate to recom-
mond it at this timo but tho bridge
must be repaired. Tho cost of re

that this is the pest timber pre
servative 6hort of tho expensive

penetration is noticed in places as.
deep as half an inch. This does
not hold with any other timber
preservative I havo ever UBed.
Moreover, this is the cheapest
paint on the market.
I beg earnestly to recommepd
that the road-overseer's (salary be
increased from $40 to 60. Wi,th
the large district he has to cover,
his expenses for travelling reduce
his salary to about that of an or

I would recommend that tho most
urgent new work to bo undertaken
in the district is tho construction of
a bridgo across the Nailiillihaolo
stream, which was overlooked in my
last month's report. This stream is
frequently impassable for any .kind of
travel, even during only ordinary
rains, for it drains a large water
shed, is on the main hel.t road just
beyond Kailua, and tho U. S. mail
goes that way. four times a week and
sometimes of tener. This was adver
tised during the last period by tho
Territory with specifications for a
wagou-bridge and approach as it was
hoped that appropriations would soon
.follow to carry the wagon road fur-
thor on but this bopo appears nqw to
be .without foundation, and I suggest
that a reduction in tho size of tho
bridge bo mado to conform to horse
travel alone, which would mean a
corresponding reduction iu cost, The
bridge should, of course, bo built ou
a proper location for a future wagon
road so that it would be oxpanded
without loss of anj work already
done. Tho cost of such a structuro

I recommend that $500,00 bo au

to disregard the old road entirely as
it is on a poor grade and is not suiU
ably located for tho subdivision of
sajd lands, and conditions in .every
way would bo bettered by Its aban

opened- The portion of this re-located
road mauka of tho homestead

this be done now for tho new lino
