Vehicular access to the Kamalani Kai Bridge side of Lydgate Park will be closed for approximately three more weeks, until mid- to late-September.
The area has been closed off for about a month already during construction, and accessible parking, ramps and walkways should be completed and the park fully opened by the end of September, said Doug Haigh, county building division.
The closure is necessary to facilitate the work on the bike and jogging path that is being installed throughout Lydgate Park, and to ensure the safety of the public.
What they’re doing now will create accessibility in the future, said Christina Pilkington, county ADA coordinator.
Kamalani Kai Bridge will remain open to the public, but bridge users will need to park in the main Lydgate parking lot. Pedestrian access to the bridge will be allowed from the parking lot near the south comfort station.
The County thanks the public for its cooperation and understanding.
