Wailupe Valley hillside restoration to begin next week

The city announced that hillside restoration at Wailupe Valley along Leighton Street will begin next week.

The $151,136 project contracted to Close Construction, Inc. begins on Monday, Sept. 28, with an expected completion date of Friday, Dec. 18.

The work schedule will be from 8:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Traffic control measures will be implemented along Leighton Street while work is performed. Motorists are reminded to observe and obey all traffic controls, posted signs, and traffic control personnel in the work area.

The project consists of installation of an impervious liner along the base of the existing rock walls to prevent further water from seeping down and potentially accelerating earth movement. The scope of work includes reconstruction of sidewalks, curbs, and retaining walls; replacement of chain link fence; and installation of new polypropylene liner.

Close Construction, Inc. is responsible for coordinating local traffic. Call (808) 851-7060 with any concerns.
