$789K Pier Replacement Begins at Mānele, Lāna‘i
A capital improvement project for the Department of Land and Natural Resources Division of Boating and Ocean Recreation’s Mānele Small Boat Harbor on Lānaʻi is scheduled to begin on Monday, June 26, 2017.
The project will include the removal of 11 existing wooden finger piers and installation of new aluminum framed finger piers with slip resistant fiber reinforced plastic decking, plastic lumber fendering, and cleats.
During the project, no temporary moorings within Mānele Small Boat Harbor will be available.
The existing ADA accessible finger pier at Slips 1 and 2 as well as the boat launch ramp will remain open throughout the duration of the project. The existing ferry pier at the harbor will also remain open.
The project is scheduled to be completed by Aug. 31, 2017 and has been contracted to Sea Engineering, Inc. for a cost of $789,799.
State officials say the project will help improve user safety and provide improved boating access for recreational and commercial vessel operators. The existing wooden finger piers have been deteriorating for many years and are in need of replacement.
