Honolulu - The USS Utah Memorial located on Ford Island will be closed for renovations from October 1 through 31, 2012. The work will include the recycling of three existing ramps replacing them with a new concrete ramp, the installation of wire cables between existing rails, repainting the memorial deck, and various landscape improvements. Completion of the project will bring the memorial into compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
All equipment, supplies, and labor associated with the USS Utah Memorial renovation are donated to the National Park Service as part of an Eagle Scout Service Project from Troop 180 of the Aloha Council.
