WASHINGTON, D.C. >> The state of Hawaii will be receiving $17 million in disaster relief funds to repair roads and highways.

The funds announced Wednesday will help the state repair roads and highways damaged by heavy rains that caused flooding and landslides on Kauai and Maui in late February and early March 2012.

Officials say the money also will go toward road repair caused by damage from a tornado, hail storms and flooding damage on Oahu and Molokai.

Wow...$17 million. That means we'll get one road repaired after they spend $15 million to do an assessment to determine which roads need to be repaired. SMDH.

Nice to read but can either Abercrombie or Caldwell explain why it's been YEARS since we've even considered fixing our roads? Neil and Kirk, please respond to your voting public.

Perhaps this time around we can do away with the obligatory gravel and tar fix and go for something more sustaining.
