$4 million released for stadium renovations
Aloha Stadium will soon receive $4 million in design work for renovations and improvements.
Gov. Linda Lingle recently released the funds, which are separate from the nearly $1.9 billion public infrastructure construction plan that was unveiled earlier this month to stimulate the economy and create jobs.
The Aloha Stadium money will be used to design projects to repair and upgrade the 33-year-old facility, extending its life another 20 to 30 years.
The work will include structural retrofits and repairs, recoating and repainting, waterproofing, seat replacement, new public elevators, restroom expansions and other improvements.
Design is scheduled to begin in June 2009 and be completed in July 2010. Construction is scheduled to begin in March 2011 and be completed in July 2012.
