$8M awarded to support Raptor jets

The military has awarded an $8 million contract for the construction of a taxiway and F-22 parking area in Hawaii.

The project is due to support the 20 Raptor fighter jets that are being based at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam.

The Honolulu District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers said Friday that it awarded the contract to Watts Contractors.

The Air Force is assigning the fighter jets to the Hawaii Air National Guard to replace an aging fleet of F-15s.

Honolulu police officers will conduct impaired-driver checkpoints in September and October, including but not limited to the Labor Day and Halloween weekends.
