FEMA and Hawaii County have reached an agreement on the cost of replacing public roads inundated by lava during 2018’s Kilauea eruption — $82 million. Of that, the county is responsible for covering 25%, or $20 million. It will use no-interest loans approved by the state legislature.
Pohoiki road will be restored next. In total, the 4-month-long eruption buried about 13 miles of public roads.
