Pork Alert… Extra $13 Million for What?

In 2006 Sen. Inouye requested $17 million for an access road at Pohakuloa Training Area.

Well he’s getting $30 Million for this project.

Wonder why the extra $13 million was allocated?  Me too.

  1. This money is for the ongoing Saddle Road improvement project. Specifically this is for the 6(5)
    phase of this project between m.m 35-41.5. Which will entail paving this new segment of roadway.

  2. My guess, and this is strictly a guess, is that the extra money is for support infrastructure (roads) for the expanded PTA area. The Army bought a parcel of land between PTA and Mamalahoa Hwy. a while back.

Feel like saying something about this?
