For Immediate Release

For Immediate Release
Pearl Harbor National Memorial shoreside dock reinstalled
HONOLULU – On January 5, the shoreside dock was delivered and reinstalled at the Pearl Harbor National Memorial visitor center after undergoing off-site repairs by Navy Facilities (NAVFAC). Public programs facilitated by the National Park Service are set to resume tomorrow, Thursday, January 6.
Every effort will be made to monitor the repairs made to the dock so that visits to the USS Arizona Memorial can remain as uninterrupted as possible. However, additional repairs may be needed and may still occur on short notice. Repetitive stressors such as wakes and tidal movements contributed to the most recent failure. Fabrication of the new shoreside dock has begun off-site. Installation of the new shoreside dock is set to occur later in the year.
Reservations are not required to enter the visitor center. Reservations for the National Park Service facilitated USS Arizona Memorial programs are highly recommended. Reservations are exclusively available via recreation.gov. Remember to know before you go and check out the park website to plan your visit: www.nps.gov/pearlharbor. The same-day walk-in first-come first-served ticket distribution program has been discontinued.
Pearl Harbor National Memorial has a no bag policy (unless out of medical necessity, additional screening procedures apply) and masks are required regardless of vaccination status. COVID-19 Safety - Pearl Harbor National Memorial (U.S. National Park Service) (nps.gov)
