Keep Traffic Jammed: Rail FEIS Shows Plans for Lane-Elimination
By Honolulu Traffic @ 3:23 PM :: 3736 Views :: Rail

From Honolulu Traffic, August 18, 2017

This was buried in one of the technical reports that are referenced and made part of the FEIS so you would not be able to say they didn’t tell you:

• Iwilei (Downtown Honolulu) to Ala Moana Center. This part of the alignment would generally travel from Downtown Honolulu to Ala Moana Shopping Center via Ka‘aahi Street, Nimitz Highway, Halekauwila Street, and Kona Street. Six station locations are proposed along this alignment, including the Iwilei Station. The following describes potential effects along this alignment option:

• On Nimitz Highway at Maunakea, Smith, Nu‘uanu, Bethel, Fort, Bishop, Alakea, and Halekauwila Streets, the existing median would need to be widened to accommodate columns. Travel and turn-lane widths would be reduced but all lanes would be reserved by acquisition of right-of-way.

• Column placement on Halekauwila Street from Nimitz Highway to Ward Avenue would generally be in the center of the street, resulting in the loss of most on-street parking spaces.

• The columns along Kona Street from Pensacola to Pi‘ikoi Street would be on both sides of the roadway. This would result in a loss of all on-street parking spaces.

• Between Pi‘ikoi Street and Ke‘eaumoku Street three tracks are proposed on the guideway. This will require columns to be placed on both sides of the street and in the median.

We had to decrypt this report so that citizens could, as Speaker Pelosi famously said, "see what's in it," and copy it to send to their friends. There are bound to be other nuggets in it so please look.
