The Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation (HART) expects more than 150 workers will be on the job as construction of the first 10-mile stretch of Honolulu’s rail transit project resumed last week, and several hundred more jobs will be added during the next few weeks. More than 1,600 employees will be working on the elevated rail project by the end of the year.
HART estimates that an average of three columns a week will be built, with a total of 422 columns planned for the first 10 miles of the 20-mile route.
