Māmalahoa Highway Project to Receive $19.5 Million in Federal Funds
The current cost of the project is approximately $25 million. The $19.5 million Federal Highway Administration Funds grant will be matched with a required 20%, or approximately $5 million, to be contributed by Hawai‘i County.
This initiative is the result of a coordinated efforts between the Federal Highway Administration, State Department of Transportation, Department of Land and Natural Resources, the County of Hawai’i and other project agencies.
“This is such an important project to improve the traffic flow and safety of the area, not only for vehicles, but for pedestrians and bicyclists as well,” said Mayor Harry Kim. “This would not have happened without the personal help of the State DOT’s Ed Sniffen and the governor.”
