HART Begins Soil Test for Waipahu Rail Transit Stations


The Honolulu Rail Transit Project began soil sampling work this week for two rail stations in Waipahu, the Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation (HART) announced today.

The soil tests will assist rail project staff in designing the two Waipahu area rail stations: the Waipahu Transit Center station at the intersection of Farrington Highway and Mokuola Street; and the West Loch station at the intersection of Farrington Highway and Leoku Street.

The soil work will be done on weekdays between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. No traffic impacts are expected with the soil test work, which will take place on private property. Lane closures are not required for this portion of the work.

Scheduled locations and dates of work are:

October 14 to 26, 2011 – Waipahu Transit Center Station

  • Mauka side of station – 94-818 Moloalo Street
  • Makai side – 94-819 Farrington Highway

 October 27 to November 16, 2011 – West Loch Station

  • Mauka side of station – 94-144 Farrington Highway
  • Makai side – 94-135 Farrington Highway

Those working, living or traveling near the work sites are advised to proceed with caution around the designated work zones and not to cross any barricades fencing off the work areas. HDR/Hawaii Pacific Engineers was awarded the $5.5 million contract to design the Waipahu Transit Center, West Loch and Leeward Community College stations.
