HONOLULU (AP) - The Honolulu City Council will consider measures Wednesday that could restart construction of a $5 billion rail project next week.
The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports council committees Monday advanced separate resolutions that will be taken up by the full council.
The Zoning and Planning Committee backed a special management area use permit and shoreline setback variance for the Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation.
The Intergovernmental Relations and Human Services Committee authorized the city to develop rail line on state property from the Kamehameha Highway portion of the project in Pearl City to the Ala Moana area.
Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation director Daniel Grabauskas says waiting another month for the council to approve the resolutions could add $3 million to the project cost.
Approval Wednesday means construction could resume Monday.
