MidWeek Islander (West Oahu) - - Front Page -

The city will con­duct night­time soil sam­pling work from East Kapolei to Waipahu be­gin­ning May 25 for its Honolulu Rail Tran­sit Project.

The soil sam­pling is part of pre­lim­i­nary de­sign work for the first por­tion of the rail route, which runs 6.5 miles be­tween East Kapolei to Pearl City.

“These tests will help us with pre­lim­i­nary de­sign work,” ex­plained DOT ser­vices di­rec­tor Wayne Y. Yosh­ioka. “Test­ing the soil sta­bil­ity along the route will help us re­fine the de­sign and lo­ca­tion of con­crete pil­lars that will sup­port the el­e­vated guide­way.”

Work in res­i­den­tial ar­eas will be ac­com­plished at night pri­mar­ily along the Far­ring­ton High­way me­dian be­tween Waipahu High School and Fort Weaver Road and will run from Thurs­day (May 27) un­til early Septem­ber.

Kiewet Pa­cific, which will de­sign and con­struct the first seg­ment of the route, was au­tho­rized by the city to con­duct the test­ing.

• Cold­well Banker Pa­cific Prop­er­ties has opened its first satel­lite of­fice in Ku­nia Shop­ping Cen­ter. The of­fice will be man­aged by the Lee­ward Of­fice lead­er­ship team and will be fur­nished with work­sta­tions, phones, prin­ters, a con­fer­ence room, video monitor and more to bet­ter serve CBP clients in West Oahu.

“We rec­og­nize that there is a large pop­u­la­tion (in West Oahu) and wish to pro­vide more con­ve­nience to our agents and val­ued cus­tomers re­sid­ing on the west side of the is­land,” said pres­i­dent Cha­son Ishii.
