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.

Father Damien and patient helpers enlarged St. Philomena Catholic Church, a tiny wooden structure built in 1872, by adding a nave in 1876. After the steeple collapsed in a wind storm, he began constructing the larger masonry and wood main nave in 1888, which is the church seen at Kalawao today.
