DLNR CLOSES KULA RESERVE WEEKDAYS FOR ACCESS ROAD REPAIRSJune 22, 2009, 12:10 PM HST · Updated June 23, 8:26 AM 0 Comments
The Department of Land and Natural Resources will close the Kula State Forest Reserve to public access on weekdays through Friday, July 3. The closure is the result of repairs and resurfacing including the replacement of a culvert to minimize heavy rainfall damage.Â The road will reopen on weekends during this period.
“We are implementing this temporary closure for public safety reasons while we improve access to the Kula state forest reserve,” said Laura H. Thielen, DLNR chairperson. “We ask the public’s patience as we make these improvements.”
A culvert will be replaced to minimize heavy rainfall damage to the dirt road and subsequent closures for its repair. This has been a common occurrence in recent wet periods.
In addition, there will be asphalt resurfacing of one mile of the access road. A mile of road was paved several months ago.
The forest will be open to the public on all weekends beginning at 6 p.m. on Friday to Monday at 6 a.m. during this period.
For information call the Division of Forestry and Wildlife at 984-8100.
