PUHI, Hawaii (AP) Ground has been broken on Kauai for a $39 million project to widen Kaumualii Highway from two lanes to four.

The 2-mi. (3.2 km) project offering shorter commute times between Puhi and Lihue is expected to create 400 jobs. It is slated to take two years to complete.

State Department of Transportation Director Brennon Morioka said March 10 that the wider highway will include sidewalks and should have more room for bicyclists. He said intersections also will be upgraded and improved along the length of the route.

The DOT is hopeful a second, two-lane bridge inland of the existing Lihue Plantation mill bridge will be under construction before the highway project is completed.

The department said the second bridge will cost between $25 and $30 million.
