Rail work kicks off in Waipahu

Relocation of utility lines is expected to begin today as the city moves forward with work on its $5.3 billion rail transit system.

"The first thing we’re going to be doing is moving the gas line by Wai­pahu High School," Ishi­kawa said.

One lane along Farrington Highway in both directions from Wai­pahu Depot Road to the Kame­ha­meha Highway Interchange will be closed Mondays through Saturdays from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. for the next seven weeks.

Projected completion: March 2019.
