TWO COUNTY PARKS PROJECTS TO BEGIN TODAY
(Posted by Wendy OSHER Â© 2009)
The county begins construction on two major parks projects today totaling $665,707.
The Kahului Community Center will undergo approximately $149,000 in upgrades that includes the renovation of its kitchen, construction of an ADA compliant restroom and related maintenance work. Â The facility will remain closed through early July, 2009.
In Kihei, a half-a-million-dollar ($516,000) project begins today to construct a mile-long pedestrian path around the perimeter of Kalama Park.Â The path, which will be six feet wide, will be constructed in increments to limit disruption of park activities. Construction will begin in the middle of the park near the softball field; park users are asked to heed signage and barricades placed as the project proceeds through different areas of the park.Â Construction is not expected to block access to the playground. Â Construction is expected to be completed by June 17, 2009.
Both contracts were awarded to David P. Ting & Sons, with completion slated by the middle part of this year.
