Hawaii to get $4.5M in Federal Transportation Grants

Hawaii will receive more than $4.5 million in federal grants from the U.S. Department of Transportation to repave the parking lot at Haleakala National Park on Maui, install signage along roads on Kauai and the Big Island and repair a taxiway at Honolulu International Airport.

The money for Haleakala and the signage is part of $363 million in  by U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood.

One grant, from the Public Lands Highway Discretionary Program, includes $2 million to recycle and repave seven asphalt parking lots along Haleakala Highway in the summit area of Haleakala National Park.

A $78,000 grant from the National Scenic Byways Program will go to a project to design, manufacture and install directional and byway identification on four state byways on the Big Island and Kauai.

And a $1.75 million grant will pay for a design study for repairing taxiway Z at the Honolulu International Airport, according to a statement from Hawaii’s congressional delegation.
