CITY BREAKS GROUND FOR MILILANI

COMMUNTY TRANSIT CENTER

           

            Mayor Mufi Hannemann and other City officials broke ground today for the Mililani Community Transit Center at Mililani Town Center.

           

            The $4,198,000 project involves construction of a facility centered on a cantilevered cast-in-place concrete platform that will serve Central Oahu bus routes. The two-story facility will consist of the upper-level bus platform along  Meheula Parkway, over the edge of the Mililani Town Center parking lot, and a passenger service building with a clock tower, a community conference room, restrooms and  bicycle racks.  The center could accommodate as many as 10 buses at a time.

           

            At the ground-breaking ceremony, the mayor credited the community, the Mililani and Mililani Mauka neighborhood boards, Oahu Transit Services, landowner Castle & Cooke and City Councilman Nestor Garcia, whose district includes Mililani, and Council Chair Donovan Dela Cruz.

           

            “This transit center will make it easier for commuters to use public transportation, and will help TheBus serve them in a more efficient manner,” said Hannemann. “All this came together because people worked together to ensure that Mililani is indeed a liveable community.”

           

            Work is scheduled to begin on April 3 and take one year. The general contractor is T. Iida Contracting.
