Crews with the Department of Land and Natural Resources Division of Boating and Ocean Recreation will be resurfacing asphalt pavement from the boat ramp access at S. Kīhei Road and around the trailer parking perimeter road; removing existing asphalt pavement at the top of the boat ramp and replacing it with new reinforced concrete pavement.

Work will also include removing the existing boat wash down facility, and construction of a new boat wash down with concrete pavement, new hose bibbs, and drainage improvements to keep runoff from entering the ocean.

Maui DOBOR district office held two pre-construction meetings with ramp users and contractors to explain the project, most recently on July 11.

The contractor will work with boaters to ensure that access to the water at Kīhei boat ramp will be available.


Maui Kupono Builders, LLC has been contracted for the $797,108 project.


Located in south Kīhei on the south side of Maui, this facility has three ramps, two docks, as well as a vessel wash down are, restrooms and a shower.  The ramp is used by a mix of commercial and recreational boaters.
