Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation (HART) has finished installing the first mile of the 20-mile elevated guideway in west Oahu, Hawaii.

Completion of the one-mile section also allows construction crews to install train tracks and other infrastructure to electrically power the system.

The first mile includes 516 guideway segments that have been engineered into place among 42 column spans, with each span measuring approximately 125 feet. Several embossed columns will also be located at each of the future rail stations to illustrate the historic and cultural significance of each region.
