HART releases Supplemental EIS in response to court order:

From Honolulu Traffic June 1, 2013

On Friday the City released a new Draft Supplemental EIS with Appendices in response to the Federal District Court's December order to justify the City's cost estimate of the Beretania Street Tunnel alternative, use of the Mother Waldren Park, and insufficient documentation of the Traditional Cultural Properties. See the links above to very large files for detailed information; we will comment on these documents after a more thorough review.

HART released the following statement at the same time:

The Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation and the U.S. Federal Transit Administration have prepared a Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (EIS)/Section 4(f) Evaluation for the Honolulu Rail Transit Project as required by a U.S. District Court Judgment.

The document is limited to Section 4(f) evaluations of the Beretania Street Tunnel Alternative and Mother Waldron Neighborhood Park.

The document can be viewed at the following locations:
