HILO » A multi-million dollar project to renovate Hawaii island's Edith Kanakaole stadium will go ahead as scheduled on Monday, with the goal of having the new and improved stadium done in time for the 50th annual Merrie Monarch Festival.
The Hawaii Tribune-Herald says the $3.2 million project includes building a dressing room and larger lobby, as well as upgrading the stadium's restrooms. The dressing room will be in a new 4,200-square-foot multipurpose building to be located adjacent to the stadium. The lobby area in front of the stadium will be expanded toward the parking lot.
The festival runs from March 31 to April 6.
