KAILUA-KONA >> Work to widen Queen Kaahumanu Highway will last more than a year beyond the original completion date.
West Hawaii Today reports that Department of Transportation officials noted impacts to archaeological sites after the revised timeline was released.
Work that began on Highway 19 in September 2015 was expected to be finished in two years at a cost of about $90 million.
The updated completion date is November 2018.
Department of Transportation spokesman Tim Sakahara said earlier this month that officials were looking for ways to speed up the project.
It’s unclear if project costs have been impacted.
