City crews to repair a Waikiki rock wall, promenade impacted by erosion
HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - Emergency repairs are underway at an erosion hot spot in Waikiki.
Crews are fixing a damaged concrete wall near Queen’s Surf Beach, where king tides took out a lifeguard tower last summer.
The city says crews will be removing the severely damaged ramp and rock wall as well as repairing the promenade wall right by Barefoot Beach Cafe.
During the work, the promenade will be closed to foot traffic.
City officials say this is a direct result of rising sea levels taking a toll on infrastructure.
The work is expected to be finished by the end of January.
