'Lot of Work To Do' Before Feds Fund Honolulu Rail

Adrienne LaFrance/Civil Beat

Honolulu won't receive $1.55 billion in federal funding for rail unless it strengthens its financial plan. So what steps is the city taking to make sure everything is in order?

"We have a lot of work to do," Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation board Chair Carrie Okinaga told Civil Beat Thursday morning after HART's Project Oversight Committee discussed the Federal Transit Administration's demands.

"We are on top of it. We have to stay on top of it to meet these deadlines," Okinaga said. "So that's the key, is keep everything moving."

Have feedback? Suggestions?
