Koko Crater Summit closing during project, tramway open to public on weekends & holidays

Project scheduled to be finished in three weeks

O‘AHU -- The modified project to mitigate safety issues atop the Koko Crater Summit is scheduled to begin next Monday, March 29, with helicopter work requiring the closure of the entire Koko Head District Park and the Koko Crater Tramway on Monday.

The use of a helicopter for this project is necessary for approximately three additional days, at which time the entire park, the tramway, and Koko Head Shooting Complex will be closed to the public. Those additional dates are tentatively set for 4/5, 4/13, and 4/14.

The Koko Crater Summit is scheduled to be closed for the entirety of the three-week project. The tramway will additionally be closed to the public and Kokonut Koalition volunteers on weekdays, but will be reopened on weekends and holidays to both groups.

This current project includes:

Removal of debris from tunnels and shafts

Sealing the shafts, vents, and tunnels

Installing signs at the summit, steel platform, and tramway trestle to warn visitors of the conditions

This project was recently modified as a result of a resolution between the City and the Kokonut Koalition, which delays the removal of the summit's platform until a separate replacement project can be organized in the 12 to 18-month timeframe.

We appreciate the assistance and cooperation of tramway users and the Kokonut Koalition while these necessary closures are implemented. Mahalo and stay healthy.
