  • Hawaiian Pond Shoreline Improvement Project Beginning At Ala Moana Regional Park

Hawaiian Pond shoreline improvement project beginning at Ala Moana Regional Park

A Capital Improvement Project is beginning this week create a more inviting and stable shoreline along the Hawaiian Pond at Ala Moana Regional Park.

Constructed as a flood control basin for storm water drainage, the banks of the Hawaiian Pond located near the park's entrance at Atkinson Drive have become severely eroded. This has created a pond perimeter that is muddy and not frequently used by park goers, as the ponds water levels regularly fluctuate due to tidal conditions and runoff from the mauka streams.

In order to prevent further erosion and sediment run-off, this project will place Flexamat® pre-cast concrete bank stabilization material along the edges of the pond.

The scope of the work also includes: repairs to the central bridge over the pond, construction of a lit walkway connecting the bridge to other mauka pathways, a new seating area along the ‘Ewa-end of the pond, replacement of eight trees from the pond's edge to a more stable location mauka of the pond, and protection of Exceptional Trees near the construction zone.

The over $1.96 million contract for this project was awarded to Hawaiian Dredging Construction Company, Inc.

The project is expected to be finished in summer 2021.
