Hawaii's Bridges: Coconut Island Bridge in Hilo Bay (1)
April 2001 (19.729 Degrees, -155.068 Degrees) Coconut Island Bridge
North from Queen Lili-uokalani Gardens is a footbridge to tiny Coconut Island. It's a three span bridge on slotted pier walls that support a single girder deck. I read that the island was built to provide a picnic and fishing area for tourists staying at the hotels around Hilo Bay.
