USS Arizona Memorial To Remain Closed Through the Summer

From the March 29, 2019, Hawaii Now News.

Repairs to the USS Arizona's dock are expected to continue through the summer.

The National Park Service has awarded a $2.1 million contract and repairs are expected to be complete in time for the next December 7, 1941, commemoration.

In the meantime, there will be no walk-on visits to the memorial.  Several deadlines have already passed since it was closed in May 2018 after staff discovered damage to the dock's exterior concrete caused by a malfunction in the dock's anchoring system.

Officials say the Pearl Harbor Visitors Center will remain open.
