State to close Diamond Head for road, wall repairs | News
WAIKIKI (HawaiiNewsNow)- The Department of Land and Natural Resources announced Friday that the popular Diamond Head State Monument will be closed for nearly a week as crews make repairs to roads and walls at the park.
Crews will shut down the park to all visitors between Monday, May 7 and Sunday, May 13 as they repave the park's parking lot and make repairs to the damaged stone wall along the park's entry road. The road leading from the parking lot to the Kahala Tunnel will also be repaved.
"We appreciate the public's understanding and cooperation during this week-long closure of Diamond Head State Monument so that we can make needed repairs to a section of this heavily trafficked road," said William J. Aila, Jr., DLNR Chairperson. Approximately, 1000 visitor vehicles (including cars, vans, commercial vehicles, and others) enter and exit the park daily.
According to DLNR, the park will reopen to the public on Monday, May 14, 2012. Normal park hours are 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. daily.
