Sidewalks along county roads throughout the island are being upgraded to include ramps and curb cuts.
Haron Construction Inc., an O‘ahu-based company, was awarded a $2.2 million contract for the project and was recently issued a Notice to Proceed.
Work on the sidewalk improvement project began this week in Lihu‘e and will continue around the island through spring of next year.
The project is expected to be completed at the end April 2009.
Funding for the project was provided by the Federal Highway Administration.
