HONOLULU (AP) - A second federal subpoena has been issued for information about the 20-mile (32-kilometer) rail line under construction on Oahu.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports the Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation has received the grand jury subpoena, but a spokesman for the project declined to answer questions Thursday.

U.S. investigators demanded tens of thousands of documents last week, including consultant contracts and a list of contractors.

The agency has said the first demand for documents largely duplicated the records the agency has already provided to the state auditor.

The agency pledged to cooperate with the first subpoena, saying work will continue on the project to have it ready for limited passenger service next year.



The agency expects to finish the roughly $9.2 billion project in late 2025.
