The USS Arizona Memorial remains closed to visitors this week due to a structural issue impacting the visitor loading ramp, according to the National Park Service.
The Memorial was also closed last week while park officials addressed the structural integrity of the ramp.
After consultation with structural engineers, NPS officials said they are developing a plan for short-term repairs that would allow visitor access to resume as quickly as possible while more permanent repairs are made. The amount of time needed for the short-term repairs is not yet known.
USS Arizona Memorial programs, meanwhile, will continue as scheduled, and visitors will be taken on harbor tours in the vicinity of the Memorial instead of disembarking there.
“Please understand that visitor safety is our primary concern, and we thank everyone for their understanding and patience,” NPS officials said in a statement.
The Battleship USS Missouri, the USS Bowfin Submarine & Museum and Pacific Aviation Museum Pearl Harbor are not affected and remain open to visitors.
