Honolulu rail system project to progress in 2014

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) Oahu's planned rail transit project is scheduled for significant construction work in 2014, despite an unresolved case in federal court.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports the work resumed last fall in the fields of west Oahu after a year-long court ordered hiatus.

Oahu residents this year can expect to see almost 200 additional concrete columns erected to ultimately support the elevated rail system. Many of the columns will be along Kamehameha Highway west of Aloha Stadium.

The project's main opponents, meanwhile, are criticizing the plans to continue construction despite an unresolved lawsuit.

The anti-rail group, honolulutraffic.com, says it is concerned the city is trying to push the project through so it "forces the judges' hands."

A hearing is scheduled Thursday in Honolulu for the federal lawsuit against the project.
