The Iao Valley State Monument was reopened Tuesday after the state Department of Land and Natural Resources completed repairs to park walkway sections, according to an announcement.
The work included repairs to damaged concrete walkway steps and replacement of streamside walkways and sections of the main asphalt walkway from the comfort station to the bridge.
Vares Contracting completed the $23,500 project. Funding came from transient accommodations tax revenue, in cooperation with the Hawaii Tourism Authority, the announcement said.
In addition, during the park closure, Division of State Parks and its vendor, Republic Parking, refurbished and installed a new parking attendant booth to replace one that was vandalized and burned beyond repair in early November. A donation made the replacement possible.
"We appreciate the generous donation by Maui Land & Pine Co. to our parking vendor, Republic Parking, of a replacement parking booth at no cost. This is private sector helping private sector helping the public sector and a great example of Maui-style kokua among neighbors," said Dan Quinn, state parks administrator.
