Honolulu Fail… I meant Rail.

Honolulu will likely have to push back the opening of its full 20-mile commuter rail line by at least a year due construction delays and changes in how the project will be built.

The elevated rail line could also cost up to $200 million more than currently projected, which would push its growing shortfall to more than $1 billion.

Officials from the Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation revealed those details in a Monday letter to Mayor Kirk Caldwell and City Council Chairman Ernie Martin that provided an update on the $6 billion rail project.
