News Release from HART, Feb 14, 2019
The Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation (HART) this week received a federal subpoena to provide documents and files that largely duplicate those recently provided and made available to the state auditor.
The documents required include those going back to the project’s beginning such as consultant contracts, a list of contractors and subcontractors, contractor change orders and supporting documents, archaeological studies, and correspondence with the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) regarding the rail project’s Full Funding Grant Agreement.
HART pledges its full cooperation in complying with the subpoena and wants to assure our many stakeholders that our staff and contractors will continue to work toward completing the project and having it ready to open for limited passenger service next year.
