“The Honolulu Rail Transit Project is one of the most significant infrastructure projects in City history and will provide jobs and a boost to the state’s economy,” said Mayor Mufi Hannemann. “We have achieved several milestones recently, such as entering Preliminary Engineering and awarding the first construction contract.”


“Rail transit is becoming a reality, and many more activities will occur soon. My administration is committed to keep the public informed about the Project’s progress and now is an excellent time to let the public know what to expect in the coming months.”
