The 84-acre Kapalama Container Terminal (KCT) and its 1,800 lineal feet of new berthing will enable Honolulu to almost double its cargo capacity.
The $450 million Harbors Modernization Plan is a four year project beginning December 2017 and targeted for completion in 2022.
Phase 1 includes the 84-acre intermodal yard with an elevated two-foot grade for rising sea levels as well as 1,800 lineal feet of new berthing. KCT is located next to the existing inter-island yard to enable 50,000 moves per year. Imports make up more than 80% of all goods in Hawaii.
