Emergency pole replacement to temporarily close Koko Crater Trail

Local News

On Monday, Aug. 21, Hawaiian Electric will conduct emergency pole repairs that will require temporary closures of Koko Crater Trail.

A replacement pole needs to be flown to a hill behind a residential area where there are low-hanging power lines that provide service to more than 150 customers and the Hawaii Kai fire station.

A helicopter is scheduled to fly over Koko Head District Park twice that day — from 9 to 10:30 a.m. and then again from 2 to 3:30 p.m.

Special duty police officers will be present to stop hikers from accessing the trail while the helicopter is in flight.
