Governor Neil Abercrombie today announced the release of more than $147 million for design, construction and administration of various Capital Improvement Projects (CIPs) statewide, including work to decrease repair, maintenance and upgrade backlogs that over years have accumulated at public schools, the University of Hawai'i, health facilities, and the Hawai'i State Capitol.
"These CIP projects are part of an economic strategy that has already put our state back on track toward economic recovery,"said Governor Abercrombie. "Since the start of 2012, my administration has announced the release of more than $732 million for CIPs selected for their potential to immediately address priority work while stimulating the economy and generating job opportunities for residents. More than $187 million of this has been for public school facilities across the state."
