About The Project
On August 12, 1987, the Federal Highways Administration (FHWA), State Historic Preservation Officer (SHPO), and the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP), with concurrence by the Office of Hawaiian Affairs (OHA) and the Hawai’i Department of Transportation (HDOT) executed a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) to mitigate any adverse impact resulting from the construction of the Interstate H-3 Highway.
On August 10, 1999, the H-3 Cooperative Agreement was signed between HDOT and OHA to undertake a project that would preserve and interpret the cultural resources located in North Hālawa Valley and the Luluku Terraces in Kaneohe. Funds amounting to $11 million were set aside for the project.
We understand the importance of seeking maximum community involvement for this project, from data gathering through implementation.
HLID serves as a neutral liaison between FHWA, HDOT, OHA and the community. Although these entities can have different perspectives, HLID strives to bridge these differences and deliver a meaningful project.

Design & Development Phase
- Upon completion of Phase 1
- Upon completion of Phase 2
As a new collaborative project type for all entities, Phase 1 has had its challenges and opportunities. During this time, the most crucial foundation that required patience was establishing trust. The HLID project is now at an exciting time where the ideas and concepts can be realized and more importantly a part of a living Hawaiian culture.
