Mineta Surveys Future Home of SuperFerry

Monday, August 16, 2004
U.S. Transportation Secretary Norman Y. Mineta got a first-hand look at Honolulu Harbor’s infrastructure needs during a tour with Gov. Linda Lingle and Hawaii Department of Transportation Director Rodney Haraga. Secretary Mineta visited the Pier 19 terminal facility, which was built with the help of the U.S. Department of Transportation, and heard from state leaders about plans for the Superferry project.

“For many Americans, our maritime industry and our port infrastructure network go largely unnoticed,” Secretary Mineta said. “But the reality is, this invisible network is a vital part of our economy and an essential part of our national defense.”

Secretary Mineta toured the Pier 19 shoreside facility planned as the future home of the Superferry in Honolulu.

“Governor Lingle understands the importance of maritime transportation and its ability to move the economy,” Secretary Mineta said. “Hawaii’s long-range vision for its port has the potential to create quality jobs, support the island’s growing economy and help move cargo and people throughout the archipelago safely and efficiently.”
