The 35-foot stone arch span over Puki

tractors last Wednesday and the job is
one that might well serve as a model for
future bridges over gulches out Hamakua
way. The contractors are Whitehouse 1
and Hawxhurst. The bridge as stated is I
au arch 35-foot span with a nine feet rise. '
At the cud toward Hilo, the arch rests
upon a solid ledge of rock. At the other
end a cement foundation was sunk four-,
teen feet before a solid bottom was found, 1
requiring a pump to be operated 45 days,
whereas only three days pumping was
estimated as necessary when the estimates 1
were made. The bridge is twenty feet iu ,
width and will be skirted on each side '
by copings of masonry. When the road
is cut to the line of the new bridge the
grade on both approaches to the gulch
will be greatly lessened.
