Honolulu completes judge's rail requirements

HONOLULU (AP) - Honolulu has filed a notice in federal court that it has complied with all of a judge's requirements regarding the city's rail project.

The notice filed Tuesday says Honolulu has completed a final supplemental environmental impact statement and studies to determine whether there were any previously unidentified "traditional cultural properties" eligible for the National Register of Historic Places that would be impacted by the more than $5 billion project.

The notice says there are none.

A federal judge last year ruled the city was prohibited from buying land or proceeding with construction on the city center of section of the 20-mile rail line until the studies were completed.

Rail opponents suing to stop the project have 30 days to object.
