A project that starts on Monday, March 9, at Wailuku River State Park, Rainbow Falls section, is expected to dramatically reduce the amount of parking available to visitors.
The $87,600 project, which is expected to last for six months, will improve the accessible passenger loading zone for buses parking at the park.
Improvements include relocating the loading zone away from vehicular flow and a more durable concrete pad to allow those with disabilities a safer, properly designed access to the Rainbow Falls lookout area.
“We ask the public’s assistance and understanding,” said State Parks director Dan Quinn. “Safety will be of our utmost concern in directing vehicles to parking locations and limiting parking. We will also be notifying the local tour operators so they can plan accordingly.”
