Repair of Natatorium parking lot underway
Advertiser StaffCity masons today removed and patched an area on the top of the rear facade wall on the diamondhead-mauka corner of the Waikiki Natatorium's bleachers and the Natatorium's parking lot will be closed next week to complete the repairs.
The cracking was caused by the corrosion of steel reinforcing bars in the concrete and workers removed the cracked area to protect the public from falling debris, city officials said.
Workers also will remove two areas of the 'ewa bleacher wall, requiring the parking lot in the 'ewa courtyard to be closed for five days beginning on Monday. The damaged area are directly over the driveway to the parking lot.
Signs will go up on Sunday alerting the public of the parking lot closure.
