Rail Project Completes Four Miles of Guideway

Rail Project Completes Four Miles of Guideway

The Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation (HART) achieved another milestone today with the completion of four miles of the system’s elevated guideway.

Crews have now constructed more than 170 spans. A span is the portion of the guideway between two support columns. The four-mile mark is along Farrington Highway near Leoku Street in Waipahu. To date, 290 foundations have been completed and 204 columns have been built, as the guideway makes its way through Waipahu.

“We continue to make progress on the construction of our rail project,” said HART Executive Director and CEO Dan Grabauskas. “Safety is our top priority, and we want to thank the public for their patience, and for driving safely through our construction zones.”

The guideway segments are cast at the project’s casting yard in Kapolei, and a single span requires about 12 segments. Each segment weighs about 50 tons. About 3,290 segments have been cast, in preparation for guideway construction.

In addition, work continues to progress at the project’s 43-acre Rail Operations Center near Leeward Community College. And the first two rail cars are now in Pittsburg, California and are on schedule to arrive in Honolulu in the first quarter of 2016.
