Honolulu Breaks Ground for First Rail Station

Representatives of the Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation (HART) and its partner, Hawaiian Dredging Construction Company, held a traditional Hawaiian blessing ceremony—complete with leis and other garlands—Feb. 25 as part of the ground-breaking event for its first rail station, West Loch in Waipahu. Kahu (minister) Kordell Kekoa performed the rite using ti leaves, water and Hawaiian sea salt meant to cleanse, bless and purify the land as Mayor Kirk Caldwell, City Council Chair Ernie Martin, council members, state legislators and HART board members took part. “This is another significant milestone in our project’s progress,” said HART Executive Director and CEO Dan Grabauskas, standing behind Kekoa. “We’re building a better Honolulu, providing people a safe and reliable option to driving their cars in one of the most congested cities in the country.”
