Honolulu Rail Transit’s FEIS Posted Online

The Final Environmental Impact Statement is now available online for everyone to read at two locations at a minimum – the City’s Honolulu Transit website and at Civil Beat. (At the City site, scroll down with the tiny scroll bar to the right of the Final EIS announcement.)

A thorough reading probably would eliminate all of the “what’s with this” questions and statements about the project in the comments section beneath the Star-Advertiser’s rail stories. Virtually every question that could be asked about rail is answered in the FEIS.

As Civil Beat notes, “Maybe you’ll read the thing word-for-word, maybe you won’t. Either way, here it is, in its massive searchable entirety.”

Yes2Rail will be focusing on sections of the document in the weeks ahead to highlight key project attributes that we think will interest our visitors. So have at it!

You're invited to continue reading here at Yes2Rail -- especially the "Beat Goes On" post immediately below. A thorough understanding of how the Star-Advertiser covers Honolulu rail will help you evaluate its future stories on this project.
