A capital improvement project for the Honokohau Small Boat Harbor mauka boat ramp in Kailua-Kona is scheduled to begin on Jan. 30, 2017.

The project will include the removal of both concrete loading docks and installation of new loading docks with new plastic lumber fendering and cleats.

The project has been contracted to Isemoto Contracting and will cost $562,700.

The ramp will be closed until the improvement project is completed, estimated by March 30, 2017. During the closure boaters will need use alternative launching sites. Boaters should coordinate with the Hawai‘i district boating staff for alternate launching sites during the closure.

This project will help improve user safety and provide additional boating access for recreational and commercial vessel operators.
