HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - Work began Monday on the Koko Crater Tramway after an agreement between the City and County of Honolulu and the Kokonut Coalition.

The popular hike consists of 1,048 wooden steps, many of which are eroded and degraded.

The Kokonut Coalition is a nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting the World War II Tramway.

In 2019, the city and mayor allocated $1 million towards long-term and immediate repairs to the tramway turned recreational resource. About $74,000 was used in conjunction with the public-private partnership between the city and the Koalition.

And now they are asking for the public’s help to repair the old World War II tramway.

You can find more information on the Kokonut Coalition Facebook page.
