The long-delayed Hilo Bayfront Trails project will soon begin. Hilo Bayfront Trails president and project organizer Peter Kubota tells reporter Ivy Ashe that “We’re just about ready to start construction on Phase I….Things progress slowly, but we’ve moved this forward quite a lot.”
When the project is done, the trail network “will link downtown Hilo with both Hilo Harbor and the University of Hawaii.” According to Kubota, the trail project will be done in three phases, depending on the funding and the number of personnel available to work on the project.
A fundraising effort by Friends of Hilo Bayfront Trails will begin once Phase I construction starts. Kubota says “For every ten thousand we raise, we get another ten thousand…there’s good things happening in Hilo…I think it’s growing in the right ways.”
