~~<p>Building Oahu&rsquo;s first urban transit system provides both the opportunity and the responsibility to do things right. While we may have missed the mark on occasion, we are increasingly working to do better, to do things with respect and by listening to Oahu&rsquo;s diverse communities.</p>
<p>The Supreme Court ruling provides a lesson and an opportunity to go beyond what is required and to do what is right. We have responsibly accelerated the archaeological surveys and have completed more than 80 percent of the work required. We have managed to keep the project within budget, and while the recent court ruling has meant a temporary delay on some project work, we remain on track to complete construction on time.&nbsp;</p>
