State Parks

HONOLULU --  Road and parking lot paving projects are scheduled at two O‘ahu state parks this month, as part of regular parks maintenance work.  Starting next week, Monday August 13 through Monday August 20, Nu‘uanu Pali State Wayside will be closed, due to paving of the vehicle parking lot, followed by pavement curing and striping.  Gates along the park access roads will be locked on both sides of the Pali highway, therefore there will be no vehicle access to the lookout.  If the project is completed prior to August 20, the park will reopen earlier.
