Hawaii Lions Clubs Members Resume Sidewalk Repairs

May 3, 2012

Lions Clubs of Hawaii members have volunteered to help the city make short-term repairs to sidewalks.

Honolulu Mayor Peter Carlisle announced on Saturday that the city has resumed its ‘Safe Sidewalks Project.’

The city has about 1,800 miles of sidewalks that need maintenance due weather damage, tree roots and regular pedestrian use.

Volunteer laborers from the Lions Club joined the Department of Facility Maintenance Saturday in Chinatown. Temporary fixes are needed along Nuuanu Avenue, Smith Street and Maunakea Street while the city works on a long-term solution.

The Safe Sidewalks Project will work on Waikiki walkways on June 30.
