CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT FUNDS RELEASED FOR AIRFIELD LIGHTING IMPROVEMENTS AT ELLISON ONIZUKA KONA INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT 

HONOLULU - Senator Lorraine R. Inouye is pleased to announce that Governor David Ige has released $4,000,000 to finance the upgrading of the existing runway and taxiway lighting systems from incandescent to light-emitting diode (LED) at Ellison Onizuka Kona International Airport at Keahole, Hawai'i. “I want to thank Governor Ige for making these funds available,” Senator Inouye said. “LED lighting lasts an estimated 25 times longer than their incandescent counterparts. With a decrease in bulb changes, maintenance crews can focus on preventative maintenance and other projects.”



In a letter announcing the release of the funds, the Governor also expressed his gratitude. “Mahalo for your work on behalf of the residents of your district to secure these funds. Projects such as these are critical components of the public infrastructure and contribute to building a better home for our kupuna, keiki, and all the residents of Hawai‘i.”
