Maui Crews Get Sealcoat Training SealMaster Hawaii spent two days in late February training three crews on Maui on the proper use of equipment and the application of two sealcoats of MasterSeal OptiPave Plus for the island’s streets and highways. “They performed cleaning and hot crackfill prior to our arrival,” says John Moody, vice president of Walker-Moody Asphalt Maintenance Ltd. and SealMaster Hawaii. “We then trained them on how to apply sealcoat, do the edging, and use the squeegee machine and spray machine. We applied the first coat on day one and the second coat on day two.” Maui is the first county in the state to do sealcoating. The county recently purchased a SP575 dual spray/squeegee machine and a TR750 SprayMaster with Pro-Air System, and SealMaster Hawaii provided training on their use. SealMaster Hawaii trained three Maui road crews on the use of new sealcoating equipment. Hilo’s Edith Kanakaole Stadium Open The lobby and concession area were expanded at Edith Kanakaole Multi-Purpose Stadium in Hilo. The renovated and expanded Edith Kanakaole MultiPurpose Stadium in Hilo was blessed during a ceremony on March 18. Mayor Billy Kenoi recognized the contractors, Isemoto Contracting Co. Ltd., and the 15 subcontractors, on meeting a three-month construction deadline. “Without all your hard work, we wouldn’t be here at this time. Mahalo everybody,” Kenoi said. The blessing was performed by Kahu Leifi Hao of Ka Hoku Ao Malamalama church in Keaukaha. Anchored by a new 4,200-square-foot building featuring six dressing/meeting rooms and tiled restrooms, the modernized facility can be used for such varied public events as trade shows, school graduations and the Merrie Monarch Festival. Other features include a new color, native landscaping, new fencing and covered side entrances. Inside is an expanded lobby, a larger concession area, an upgraded electrical system to support enhanced lighting and sound system capabilities, a replacement sewer line, drainage improvements and a larger vehicle entrance. The stadium upgrade is the part of a $4 million revitalization of the Hoolulu Complex.
