Federal stimulus funds for highway, airport and bus improvements are expected to generate 3,170 jobs for Hawaii. The state will receive a total of $246 million for projects in all four counties. The Department of Business, Economic Development and Tourism estimates that for every million dollar in stimulus money invested, 12.9 jobs will be created or preserved. Large scale projects on Maui include an $18.5 million project to install an explosive detection system at Kahului Airport and $15 million to build a new apron at the facility. There’s also $7 million included for resurfacing parts of the Piilani and Hana Highways, and $6 million for improvements on Market Street in Wailuku between Kahawai Street and Makuhau Road.
