Kahului Airport car rental facility clears review

WAILUKU, Hawaii (AP) - A proposed structure to consolidate car rental companies at Kahului Airport has cleared a hurdle.

The state Office of Environmental Quality Control has determined that a proposed car rental facility would cause no significant environmental effect to nearby wetlands or protected species such as the Hawaiian hoary bat, Hawaiian stilt and Blackburn's sphinx moth.

The Maui News reports the facility would consolidate rental agencies into one three-level structure.

The structure will provide airport employee parking on its roof, freeing parking in front of the airport.

Its main function would be for rental car pickup and return. Airport officials say the facility will be designed for 1,500 to 2,000 rental cars

The project is scheduled to go to bid Oct. 17. Transportation Department officials hope construction can begin in March.
