HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is hosting a pair of public meetings as it prepares a study into the impacts of improving the Honolulu navigation channel used by shippers.

We’re told the study will look for ways to improve efficiency while maintaining safety and reducing transportation costs.

Scoping meetings are planned for Thursday and Friday from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

Both meetings will be at the Homer Maxie Trade Center Conference Room — 521 Ala Moana Boulevard.

The public can also attend the meetings virtually. Click here to access the meeting.

The study is estimated to cost a minimum of $3 million and will take a minimum of three years to complete.

Officials said this study will be used as a basis for ensuring compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act. The evaluation will examine the costs and benefits as well as the environmental impacts of modifying the maintained dimensions of the existing Federal project.
