$4M Released for Kauai’s Kuhio Highway

HONOLULU (AP) Almost $4 million will be used to build new retaining walls and roadway pavement repairs for Kuhio Highway on Kauai.

The section of the highway that will see the improvements are in an area near Lumahai and Wainiha.

The existing wall dates back to the 1930s and was built of concrete rubble. It is crumbling and the hillside has eroded as well. Storms have caused slides that have damaged the pavement and cut off vehicular access to the Lumahai area.

The bulk of the money will pay for materials and labor, while $85,000 will be spent to buy two parcels of land from Bishop Estate to facilitate repairs of the failing retaining walls.

Construction is slated to begin in February 2010.
