HONOLULU — Gov. David Ige announced the release of $306,834,668 for capital improvement projects that will be administered by various state departments, including significant amounts for Kaua‘i projects.
Waimea High School will get a new gym, as $27 million of the funds released between Nov. 1, 2022, and Dec. 2, 2022, are for construction of a new gym and related facilities. The $29 million project has an estimated completion date of March 2026.
The other large Kaua‘i project that received funds is the relocation of one of the two runways at Lihu‘e Airport. Some $88.5 million was released for that work, expected to be completed by February 2025.
“From schools to highways, water systems to health care, the funds I am releasing will support improvements in every county in the years to come,” said Ige. “I thank the Legislature for appropriating funds for these important projects.”
