DLNR NEWS RELEASE: One-day closure set Sept. 21 for striping of Makapu’u Lighthouse Trail parking lot

Posted on Sep 19, 2017 in Latest Department News

HONOLULU — The popular Makapu‘u Lighthouse road/trail and parking lot in the Kaiwi State Scenic Shoreline, will be closed for one day, Thursday, Sept. 21, 2017 while the DLNR Division of State Parks’ contractor stripes the parking stalls. This step will complete the maintenance work in the parking lot. The trail will reopen the next day.

It follows the application last week of a weather-resistant protective slurry seal coat on the paving of the Makapu‘u Lighthouse access road from Kalaniana‘ole Highway into the parking lot.  Slurry Seal is used for preventive maintenance and is designed to extend the life of a pavement.

The work is being done by contractor Pacific Preferred Contractors. Project cost is $5,700.
