Kalaniana‘ole Highway Closure
The Koko Head Shooting Complex will operate under its regular schedule on Sunday, November 19, 2023 despite an early morning closure of Kalaniana‘ole Highway due to the annual Kaiwi Coast Run & Walk. The highway will be closed in the eastbound direction beginning at 5:10 a.m., and completely closed beginning at 6:15 a.m. The entry to Koko Head Shooting Complex is expected to reopen between 7:45 a.m. and 8 a.m. that morning. Shooters are advised to access the complex from the Sandy Beach Park direction. For more information please visit https://www.kaiwicoastrun.org/
KHSC was closed on Sept. 16, 2022 after the City received notice that many of the complex employees received blood test results indicating elevated levels of lead. These test results indicated that the lead levels were well below the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and medically established levels of concern. Although the levels did not pose an immediate health risk to the staff, they were relocated out of an abundance of caution.
Following significant improvements to the grounds and complex operations, the KHSC archery range reopened on March 24, 2023, with the pistol and rifle ranges reopening on April 29, 2023. Due to the limited staffing, the pistol and rifle ranges continue to only operate on weekends from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., utilizing the pros.hnl.info free online reservation system for shooters to book 1-hour 20-minute time slots. Walk-in use of the ranges during regular hours of operation is available.
