Continuing to invest in capital improvement projects (CIP) that further strengthen Hawaii's economy, Gov. Neil Abercrombie today announced the release of more than $14.3 million to advance harbor improvements to two Hawaii Island harbors and various highways across the state.
"These priority investments in state infrastructure add further stimulus and jobs to the economy in order to build upon our state's $1.1 billion turnaround," Gov. Neil Abercrombie said. "These CIPs will realize significant and in some cases long-awaited improvements, such as those in Hilo and Kawaihae Harbors on the Big Island. Others heighten safety, mitigate erosion, and address other needed structural enhancements along our state's highways."
