More remains found along Honolulu rail route

Posted: Updated:

HONOLULU (AP) - Archaeologists have found more human remains along Honolulu's planned $5 billion rail route.

Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transporation says remains for at least three people were found over the weekend near the route's planned City Center stop.

Officials say the findings include one intact human burial.

The findings come after archaeologists found a bone fragment last month along another part of the route.

Hawaii has a stringent state law protecting graves. If a construction project encounters bones, work must stop in the immediate area and authorities must be notified.

It's important in Hawaiian culture to leave bones undisturbed.
