Honolulu rail opening delayed as station contract bids canceled

Posted on September 10, 2014

HONOLULU — The first 10 miles of the Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation's (HART) rail project will be opened a year later than originally expected because bids to build the first nine rail stations came in significantly higher than expected, which led the agency to cancel the contract bids, Hawaii News Now reported.

Now instead of having one big contract to build nine transit stations they'll have three separate contracts to build three stations at a time. Also instead of forcing construction companies to have the work done by 2017 they'll push back the opening date to 2018 in hopes of eliminating the risk and time crunch on contractors, according to the report.
