USS Arizona shrine room to undergo 2nd phase of work

USS Arizona

HONOLULU —Construction on the USS Arizona Memorial Shrine Room wall is scheduled to begin in September.
The project kicks off the second phase of a three-part restoration that began in 2012.

Park officials say weather exposure and saltwater spray have taken a toll on the wall, which lists the names of the men who died aboard the Arizona.

The original wall was replaced in 1984, but has since become stained and eroded in areas.
