HANAUMA BAY NATURE PRESERVE TO CLOSE FOR TWO WEEKS IN APRIL FOR MAJOR REPAVING PROJECT 

The City’s Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve will close for about two weeks on Wednesday, April 10, 2002 for major construction.  The work is a major part of the City’s Koko Head Park Improvements Project.  The nature preserve is expected to reopen about April 24.  That date depends on the weather during construction. 

The closure will allow a contractor to complete major paving and roadway work.  That includes work on the public parking lot, loading zone, bus parking lot, staff parking lot and other areas.  A major part of the construction involves resurfacing the roadway between the beach and the upper parking and picnic areas.  The new surface will be of textured concrete.  During that period, no vehicles or pedestrians will be allowed to use the road. 

Only a skeleton crew will remain on site.  Most of the park’s staff will be on vacation or other assignments during the construction period.  Additional queries about the closure should be directed to the park’s information line at 396-4229.
