PARC Seawall Repairs Resume April 14

Caveats: NONE

Aloha Senator Shimabukuro:

UPDATE: Pilila`au Army Recreation Center (PARC) seawall repairs will now start April 14. Please consider posting this update on your web site and in social media. Mahalo.


WAIANAE, Hawaii – Community members should be advised that repair work on portions of the Pilila’au Army Recreation Center (PARC) seawall is not expected to start until April 14.

Recreation activities will be limited around the work site, as there will be temporary barricades and construction equipment staging near the project.
Beach users should take appropriate safety precautions when around this area.  Caution signs will be posted around the work area.

Repairs will consist of placing reinforced concrete on the first 180 feet of the existing seawall, as this area is in danger of collapse. Sandbags, boulders and other construction materials will not be placed in the ocean, as all work will be done above the high water mark.

The work is scheduled to be completed by the end of May, pending weather and ocean swells.

PARC staff appreciates your patience and cooperation during this facility improvement project.  For further information, call the U.S. Army Garrison-Hawaii Public Affairs Office at 656-3159.
