Hanauma Bay closure extended until Saturday

EAST HONOLULU, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Delayed roadwork has prompted Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve to remain closed longer than expected.

The extended closure now includes Friday, Dec. 7. The beach and all scenic lookout areas will be off limits to the public during that time.

The project was originally expected to be completed by Thursday, but rain delays forced crews to push back starting their work until that day.

Weather permitting, Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve will re-open on Saturday, Dec. 8.
