Amala Place gate to be locked
Maui County will lock the Amala Place gate entrance to Kanaha Beach Park at closing on Sunday.
The gate will remain closed through 7 a.m. on Friday.
The temporary closure is needed to safeguard public safety during the area’s previously announced planned clean-up that will require heavy equipment to remove derelict vehicles and solid waste from the area, according to a news release.
The Maui Police Department will also close Amala Place to through traffic near the Kanaha Pond Wildlife Sanctuary and the Wailuku-Kahului Wastewater Treatment Facility.
Kanaha Beach Park will remain open and accessible via Koeheke Street, which becomes Ka’a Street, near the old rental car area by the airport.
