Con­struc­tion Clo­sures For Maka­puu Trail

MidWeek Islander (Windward Oahu) - - Windward Oahu Islander -

Hik­ers should take note of sched­uled clo­sures through July be­cause of con­struc­tion on Maka­puu Light­house Trail.

The $2.7-mil­lion ren­o­va­tion looks to repave the trail, re­con­struct bro­ken rock walls, re­place metal culverts and in­stall four new look­out spots, as well as con­duct other main­te­nance work on the wellused hik­ing spot.

Clo­sure dates in­clude Feb. 23-27 and March 2-5, with more set ten­ta­tively for July 20-24 and 27-28. Work be­gan in early Fe­bru­ary.

The park

is open on week­ends through­out con­struc­tion, even dur­ing clo­sure weeks, and one side of the trail will be again open to the public on week­days af­ter March 5. Hik­ers should note that there may be de­lays while ma­chin­ery is moved and to ex­er­cise ex­tra cau­tion dur­ing this time.

Nei­ther Maka­puu Look­out along Kala­ni­anaole High­way nor the Kaiwi shore­line will be af­fected by the work. But dur­ing park clo­sures, guests will have to en­ter those ar­eas via the Sandy Beach end of the park, as the trail park­ing lot also will be closed.

Regular park hours are 7 a.m. to 6:45 p.m. (un­til 7:45 p.m. af­ter April 1).
