Change orders totaling $15 million approved for rail

Under earlier plans rail was supposed to have started running from East Kapolei to Aloha Stadium in September 2016, but that interim opening has now been pushed to July 2020, according to the Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transit.

The full 20-mile route’s opening has been pushed to December 2025, but rail’s independent overseers have recently questioned whether that target is realistic.

More than $6 million will go to Kiewit Infrastructure West, as the firm building the system’s first 10 miles continues to make revisions to its columns and elevated guideway so it will support the load of the rail stations.
