Lihiwai Street within Lilioukalani Gardens will be closed May 20th to 24th, 2019 from 6:00 am to 3:30 pm for Debris Removal near Coconut Island.
From our colleagues at the Dept. of Parks and Recreation:
A section of Lihiwai St., within Lili‘uokalani Gardens, between the entrance to Mokuola (Coconut Island) and the Isle’s parking lot, will be closed to vehicular and pedestrian through-traffic from 6:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. daily, from Monday, May 20 to Friday, May 24 for debris removal.
Access to Mokuola (Coconut Island) via Keli‘ipio Place and access to the parking area at the southwest end of the Lili‘uokalani Gardens (commonly known as “Isles”) will be open during these times. Likewise, most of Lili‘uokalani Gardens will remain open, with some areas along Lihiwai Street closed to park users by safety barricades.
The Dept. of Parks & Recreation will be using heavy equipment to remove large logs and other debris deposited along the shoreline in this area by Hurricane Lane.
