Second phase announced for Hanakao`o Beach parking improvements project

The second phase of the Hanakao`o Beach Park parking improvements project will begin March 22, the Department of Parks and Recreation announced. The park will be open to pedestrians, but closed to vehicles from March 22 through June 30.

The beach sidewalk north of the comfort station will reopen March 22, although intermittent closures may be needed for pedestrian safety. The beach and park facilities will remain open to pedestrians throughout the duration of this project. People may park at the adjacent Wahikuli beach parks, and reach Hanakao`o on a sidewalk.

The project includes the removal and replacement of an asphalt parking lot, drainage improvements and construction of an ADA accessible sidewalk. The project features Low Impact Design best management practices to reduce stormwater runoff into the ocean. Design features include curb cuts and catch basins to direct and intercept stormwater, perforated drain lines to allow stormwater to percolate into the ground, and overflow catch basins to capture additional stormwater during heavy rains.

The project consultant is Otomo Engineering Inc., and the general contractor is Norrie Construction.

The department appreciates the public’s understanding and patience and asks park visitors to remain safely outside of construction areas.
