The Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation reports Friday that the rail project’s major contractor Kiewit made the final concrete pour for the balanced cantilever work over the H-1 Freeway in Pearl City near the Sears Distribution Center.

The yellow travelers will be removed over the next several weeks.

The final eastbound minimum clearance is 18 feet, 3 inches at the shoulder lane, and gradually gets higher over the town bound lanes.

The final clearance for the westbound lanes will be approximately 22 to 23 feet high.

Kiewit crews also poured its final drilled shaft Thursday. Located near Aloha Stadium, the shafts are the foundations for the columns.

The final drilled shaft was the 186th shaft for the Kamehameha Highway section of the project, bringing the total number of shafts in the first 10 miles of the project to 495.

There are now more than nine miles of guideway constructed, and more than six miles of the steel track has been installed.

HART says work on the nine rail stations on the west side of the project is or will soon be underway, as will work on the airport section of the project.
