In Hawaii one of the most popular tourist attractions in Pearl Harbor, Oahu, had been closed. Now the US National Park Service is hoping to resume tours to the USS Arizona Memorial on Friday as repairs to the floating dock and brow are nearly complete.
Barring any unforeseen complications, tours are scheduled every 15 minutes from 7:30am to 3:00pm. Every day, Navy staff will do a visual safety check of the USS Arizona Memorial’s dock before tours begin. Demand might be high to visit the USS Arizona Memorial on Friday, since no visitors have been able to set foot on it since May 26. There are 4,350 tickets available per day.
The U.S. Coast Guard and Military Sealift Command continue to investigate what happened at the USS Arizona Memorial’s dock on May 27. The Navy doesn’t have an estimate of the cost of repairs.
