Mana Road to Mud Lane: Project is going out to bid in November or <br />even sooner. Project timeline is from Spring 2018 to Fall 2019. <br />Federal government is covering 80% of the costs ($19.5 million). <br />Hawaii County will be responsible for the remaining costs. <br />i. Concern from James Kong that the road may be built solely on <br />the input from surveyors, and without the visitation from <br />engineers. The road would not be accurately built, and just <br />designed and installed without consideration of the <br />surrounding lands. Concerned about flooding of the roads and <br />homes along the corridor if the road were to be built poorly. <br />b. Iona Court to Mana Road: Shoulders and striping work should be <br />happening in late 2017. <br />c. Speed humps on Puako Beach Drive: Two installed on the north side. <br />i.
