Lydgate Park work begins Monday, January 4, 2021

WAILUA — The County of Kaua‘i Department of Parks and Recreation announced that debris removal along the Lydgate Park beach corridor is scheduled to begin Monday, Jan. 4.

“The purpose of this project is to maintain public health and safety by removing storm-related vegetative debris as a result of the heavy flooding that occurred on March 27 and 28 along the Lydgate Beach corridor,” said Patrick T. Porter, director of the Department of Parks and Recreation.

Cushnie Construction is the contractor for the $385,900 project, which is expected to be complete by early April. During the debris-removal period, the north parking lot of Lydgate Park will be closed.

Work for the project will be along the ocean side of Wailua bridge and Hilton Garden Inn Kaua‘i Wailua Bay Hotel and the southern portion of Morgan Ponds.

    Maybe they should use that money remove the huge tweak camps that are littered all over that area as well

    So glad they are finally starting cleanup. Sure hope they clear out the entire river mouth & beaches north of Lydgate too. That seems like PLENTY of money to remove ALL of the debris.
