HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Foster Botanical Garden is scheduled to close for one day to allow for improvements to the asphalt pathway.

The application of "slurry seal" to the asphalt pathways at the city's oldest botanical garden is scheduled to take place on Tuesday, weather permitting.

Approximately 9,210 square feet of pathway will be treated with a sealant designed to protect and enhance the condition of the asphalt pathway through the botanical garden.

"While most of the botanical garden staff help to maintain the garden's lush plant life, we must also take care of the man-made facilities which help make the garden accessible to everyone," said Joshlyn Sand, Director of the Honolulu Botanical Gardens. "We hope this project will enhance the garden experience for our visitors, making this unique attraction even more enjoyable."

The nearly $24,000 contract for the work was awarded to Alakona Corporation.
