AECOM to design Honolulu rail segment

Posted on January 27, 2012

AECOM Technology Corp. was awarded a $38.8-million contract to design the airport segment of the Honolulu Rail Transit Project in Hawaii.

The company is currently working with the Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation (HART), the City and County of Honolulu, and the Hawaii State Department of Transportation to oversee the design-build contracts for the rail system's first two segments, in addition to the final design for segment three, which is the rail transit project's airport segment.

AECOM will design a 5.2-mile portion of the elevated rail guideway from Aloha Stadium to the Middle Street Transit Center in Kalihi.

The rail system will span 20 miles from East Kapolei to Ala Moana Center and is slated to open during 2019.
