Kalaupapa Dock Repair

The Kalaupapa dock bulkheads are near failure.
The Kalaupapa Dock bulkhead walls and toe structure are near failure and need 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.
