LIHUE, Hawaii (AP) - Kauai County has been awarded $13 million in federal money for transportation improvements to revitalize Lihue.

The funds will go to safety improvements including new sidewalks in parts of Lihue. Officials also plan to install new bike lanes.

U.S. Sen. Brian Schatz says securing the grant wasn't easy. He says it's the first time in four years that Hawaii got this type of grant.

The county will provide $2.5 million in matching funds. The money has to be used within the next five years.
