HONOLULU (AP) More than $12 million in state funds has been released for the second phase of the North-South Road project in Kapolei on Oahu.
The road will connect Kapolei Parkway to the H-1 freeway.
The Department of Hawaiian Home Lands is allocating an additional $6 million for the construction of water and sewer lines required during the second phase of the project.
The state broke ground on the more than 2-mi. (3.2 m), six-lane highway in February 2005.
The long-awaited North-South Road will provide area residents an additional route to and from the freeway. It will also supplement the two existing north-south routes —Fort Barrette Road and Fort Weaver Road.
