Federal Transit Administration extends rail recovery plan deadline to end of 2016

On July 21, 2016, the Federal Transit Administration responded to Mayor Kirk Caldwell’s request in June for an extension on a financial recovery plan for the Honolulu rail project.

Caldwell asked for an extension until June 2017 from the initial deadline of August 7, 2016. The mayor cited uncertainty with elections on the federal, state, and county level. Caldwell said he wanted a recovery plan that included 20 miles of track and 21 stations.

The FTA’s response was that the recovery plan be submitted no later than the end of this calendar year. The FTA also highlighted that HART needs to meet with them in August to discuss milestones and deliverables that should culminate with a plan by the end of Sept. 2016.

The FTA said that HART “must make the fundamental choice to either reduce the scope of the Project, consistent with the financial resources currently available, or seek additional, non-Federal resources to complete the functional scope of work under our Full Funding Grant Agreement of December 2012, or undertake some combination of these.”
