June Rail Report

Rail work is occurring all along the 20-mile route from Kapolei to Ala Moana. There is land acquisition underway to widen the rail right of way where it’s needed. In the City Center segment (Middle Street to Ala Moana), land acquisition was delayed due to the federal lawsuit concerning a Beretania Tunnel alternative, but that legal challenge was resolved earlier this year. There are a number of properties along the alignment that are subject to partial or full acquisition, or temporary easement due to construction. Most of these properties are commercial properties.

HART must comply with the Federal Uniform Relocation Assistance and Real Property Acquisition Policies Act of 1970 (referred to as the Uniform Act) as well as applicable state laws. As part of the right-of-way acquisition process, each affected property is appraised by an independent, third-party appraiser who determines the fair market value. The offer to property owners cannot be less than the appraised value. Relocation assistance for moving and re-establishment is also made available for displaced parties. HART makes every effort to acquire these parcels through negotiations. Eminent domain is only pursued if HART and the affected landowner are unable to arrive at a mutually satisfactory agreement. FTA approval is required on properties valued at more than $500,000.

For current traffic updates and more information, please visit the HART website, call the project hotline at 566-2299 or you can email a question to
