Army Plans to Demolish Iconic but Deteriorated Quonset Huts in Hawaii | Military.com

The Army plans to demolish nearly 100 World War II-era Quonset huts at Pohakuloa Training Area on Hawaii island — a potential loss of iconic structures that historians are lamenting.

But the service said the once-sturdy corrugated steel huts — familiar for their repurpose in many areas around the state — are now dilapidated, prone to flooding and inefficiently configured.

As part of a $210 million project, the Army wants to replace 123 buildings over 80 acres in the northeastern corner of the Pohakuloa Training Area that include barracks, troop support and administrative and industrial support facilities, according to a newly released environmental assessment.
