Among the projects that will be covered by the federal grant are improvements and the addition of pedestrian and bike lanes on Rice Street; a shared-use path from Lihue Civic Center to Kauai War Memorial Convention Hall; and bicycle and pedestrian improvements on Hoolako Street.

Other projects include sidewalks on Hoala and Kalena streets, a bicycle boulevard will be added to Pualole and Malae streets, and transit services for the Lihue Civic Center will be expanded.

The county will need to spend $2.5 million in matching funds.
