WASHINGTON, May 31 -- The U.S. Transportation Department's Federal Aviation Administration has issued a Record of Decision for the construction and operation of a 3-mile segment at Honolulu International Airport for the proposed Honolulu High-Capacity Transit Corridor Project on Oahu, Hawaii, according to Acting Manager of Airports Division (Western-Pacific Region) Debbie Roth. The proposed project consists of 20 miles of an elevated guide-way, transit stations, park-and-ride facilities, maintenance and storage facility and other ancillary facilities to support its transit system.
According to a Federal Register notice, this project would provide a high-capacity rapid transit service in the highly congested east-west transportation corridor between Kapolei and Ala Moana Center. The Project is intended to provide faster, more reliable public transportation services than what can be achieved with buses operating in congested mixed traffic. The project will provide a multi-modal transportation connection at Honolulu International Airport and also improve transportation links within the travel corridor.
