The county begins work Monday, April 13, 2009 on the final phase of accessibility improvements at Launiupoko Beach Park. The project is one of three moving into their final phase and planned at Parks facilities on Maui.
The work will result in the three month closure of the existing restrooms at Launiupoko. Workers will be constructing two separate accessible dressing/toilet rooms, one each for men and women. Handicap-accessible portable toilets will be provided to accommodate beach-goers during the restroom closure.
The project also calls for the installation of additional accessible picnic tables, barbecues and viewing benches, and the construction of new pathways to connect the restrooms with newly-designated handicap parking stalls and all of the park’s accessible amenities.
The $543,000 contract, awarded to contractor David P. Ting & Sons, also includes accessibility improvements at the Lahaina Civic Center and the War Memorial Football Stadium. The project was designed by Calvin Higuchi of Hiyakumoto + Higuchi Architects, Inc.
