HONOLULU — Repairs to the USS Arizona Memorial in Honolulu are progressing, but officials have not yet set a date to reopen the popular attraction.
The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reported Thursday that the National Park Service says it plans to issue a statement next week with a specific date.
A malfunction with the concrete dock’s anchoring system discovered in May 2018 resulted in the memorial’s closure for the past 15 months
Park employees Thursday placed a visitor ramp for walk-on visits to the 105-foot (32-meter) floating concrete dock.
Workers this week also reinstalled the memorial’s bridge spanning 30 feet (9 meters) and weighing 4 tons (3.6 metric tons).
The more than $2.1 million repair also included the installation last month of 12 new synthetic straps to anchor the boat landing dock.
