Coastal Path Progress :: North from Kealia Beach

September 24, 2008, prepared by Friend of the Path Richard Sugiyama

Another ride northward: the remaining portion of the Path north of Kealia Beach has been paved, but is still not open and under construction.

The concrete has been poured up to, and immediately north of, the new bathroom at Kealia Beach. Beyond that asphalt has been layed in an effort to cut costs. From this point on, the path is considered closed (for now).
