Parts of Kailua Beach to close for sand replenishment project

KAILUA, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Erosion at a popular Oahu beach has prompted city officials to close off parts of the park to the public for the week.

The replenishment project of Kailua Beach Park will require temporary closures of the boat ramp, boat ramp parking lot and the parking area adjacent to the concession stand comfort station. These areas will be closed all day from Monday, April 20 through Friday, April 24 as crews from the Department of Parks and Recreation and Department of Facilities Maintenance work to replenish the sand.

All areas of this beach park will be open on the weekend.

The sand was dredged from the mouth of the nearby Kaelepulu Stream.
