State funds to be used to demolish old airport cargo ramp

  • This Hawaii Department of Transportation aerial map shows the “west ramp” area of Hilo International Airport, where buildings are to be demolished to make way for 11 one-acre leasehold lots.

A stalled project to demolish the former cargo ramp at Hilo International Airport is back on track after the release of $4.5 million in capital improvement funds in mid-April by Gov. David Ige.
