Kauai coastal path wins disability access award

Honolulu Advertiser staff—Ke Ala Hele Makalae - Phase II, a coastal bike and pedestrian path on Kaua'i, was honored for its accessible design by the state Disability and Communications Access Board.

The Accessible Design Award program recognizes buildings, facilities and sites statewide that are not only accessible, but also enhance the users' entire experience while being aesthetically pleasing and functional.

The award in the public design category was accepted by Kylan Dela Cruz, interim director of Kaua'i's Department of Parks & Recreation.


"We're pleased to receive this honor from the Disability and Communications Access Board," said Dela Cruz. "Accessibility to county facilities is very important. All of the stakeholders were brought to the table for this project to ensure that people with disabilities can enjoy the bike and pedestrian path like everyone else."
