HONOLULU (AP) - The Honolulu rail project is one step closer to being restarted now that the archaeological survey looking for historic human remains has been completed.
The work on the $5 billion project was stopped by court order so that the archaeological survey could be done along the proposed rail corridor.
The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports that since 2009 surveyors have dug more than 400 trenches along the rail line's 20-mile route. They are checking for Native Hawaiian burials or other archaeological resources in the path of the rail line.
Officials report that the work uncovered seven human remains, including two that were deemed full burials. One was at Halekauwila and Keawe streets, and the other at Punchbowl Street near Pohukaina Street.
