Pie 29 groundbreaking ceremony to be held Friday

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Pier 29 at Honolulu Harbor will soon have a new look. And to kick off the modernization project, a groundbreaking ceremony will be held Friday.

Thanks to a $24.5 million grant, the State Transportation Department will reconstruct the 12 acre container yard.

The yard was shut down in 2008 after major structural damage.

Upgrades include a new drainage system, better lighting and resurfacing of the pavement.
