Sand barrier removal underway at Kailua Beach

KAILUA (HawaiiNewsNow) - Workers began moving the concrete sand barriers on the Lanikai end of Kailua Beach Monday morning.

City officials hope it will slow erosion that has led to less vegetation and room for beachgoers.

The barriers have also created a safety hazard.

Once the blocks are gone, the city plans to put sand from the nearby stream mouth in its place.
