Kalaupapa Dock Repair
The proposed project would stabilize and repair the failing bulkhead wall and toe structure located adjacent to the pier; and reconstruct/repair/stabilize the severely cracked and failing (in areas) concrete pier, and associated corroded/ failing mooring bitts and bollards. The EIS would also consider repair of the breakwater, constructing structures called “dolphins” to assist barge maneuverability, and small scale dredging of the harbor to provide access for a range of barge sizes.

Brother Joseph Dutton went to Molokai in 1886 to assist Father Damien and worked among the patients for 44 years. He kept the world posted on Kalaupapa, so his address book contained over 4000 names and bags of mail delivered to him sometimes weighed as much as 50 pounds.
