Iao Valley park ready to run
The state Department of Land and Natural Resources opened up the gates across Iao Valley Road to allow participants in the Iao Valley 10K to run to the Iao Valley State Monument, which has been closed since massive floods in September. The parking area had to be redesigned and the slope next to the Wailuku River reinforced. The state Department of Land and Natural Resources said that the monument will reopen sometime this month.
