City warns residents about counterfeit bus passes

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow)- A problem addressed three years ago has resurfaced for the City and County of Honolulu.

Back in 2010, the city confiscated 200 counterfeit bus passes and cracked down on the illegal practice. But the activity is back.

Mayor Kirk Caldwell hosted a press conference today at Alapai Transit Center to warn residents the consequences of using and selling a fraudulent bus pass.

"Those who are purchasing this counterfeit bus pass is actually violating our statutes and it's a misdemeanor. You could go to jail for less than one year or pay up to a two thousand dollar fine. We want to let people know that if they are purchasing a counterfeit bus pass they are violating the law and of course those who are making the counterfeit bus passes are also violating the law," Caldwell said.

DOT H-1 Rehabilitation Project to begin in September

DOT H-1 Rehabilitation Project to begin in September

Beginning in September, the State Department of Transportation will begin a year-long H-1 Freeway Rehabilitation Project. The work will be done during nighttime hours from 8 p.m. to 4 a.m. (Sunday nights through Friday mornings) and will span from the Middle Street overpass until Ward Avenue.

The project will include resurfacing lanes, upgrading lighting, improving drainage and adding an additional lane - similar to work done on the H-1 Freeway between the Punahou Street overpass and the Pali Highway off-ramp. The DOT says that up to 120 nights of full-lane closures in one direction at a time will be necessary.

"Having four lanes now – adding one lane in each direction – is going to help,” DOT Deputy Director – Projects Jadine Urasaki said. “It’s not going to resolve all of our traffic nightmares but it is going to try and help the quality of life in getting us to and from work.”
