The state Department of Transportation has completed repairs and reopened a wooden bridge near Makaha Beach Park that was badly damaged July 27 by a deliberately set fire.

The bridge, on Farrington Highway near Kili Drive, was reopened yesterday afternoon to all traffic. It had been closed for the past several weeks to all but light vehicles while repairs were being made.

Additional work to remove debris and excess soil is expected to be completed by next week.
