Honolulu Rail Project
The City and County of Honolulu plans to build a $5.2 billion elevated rapid-transit line that will cover 20 miles from East Kapolei to Ala Moana Center. The proposed route passes through Ewa, Waipahu, Pearl City, Aiea, Kalihi, downtown Honolulu and Kakaako.
Since release of the Draft Environmental Impact Statement in November 2008, the city has made a route adjustment to bring a stop near the Honolulu International Airport into federal compliance. The proposed route is scheduled for completion by 2019. Future plans call for eventually extending the line to the University of Hawaii-Manoa and Waikiki.
