Ho‘opili was designed to provide reduced commutes, which means more time doing what you enjoy with the people you love–even if that’s just sleeping in. Nearly 80 percent of Ho‘opili will be connected to transit, whether by two planned rail stops, high level and expanded bus service, or networks of bike paths.
With many employment and education options within the community and in the surrounding Kapolei area, heading to Honolulu may become unnecessary for many residents.
Better still, being minutes from everything just might add years to your life.
Congratulations to one of our own, Road and Highway Builders, for securing the $61.0 million project on the Big Island.
Sterling Construction Company, Inc. today announced that its affiliate, signatory contractor Road and Highway Builders, LLC (RHB), is the apparent low bidder on a $61.0 million Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) project to perform reconstruction work on a 6.6 mile stretch of the Daniel K. Inouye Highway on the “Big Island” of Hawaii. The project, which will begin in the first quarter of 2016 and be completed in approximately two years, will require 800,000 cubic yards of excavation, construction of several large concrete structures, and 80,000 tons of asphalt paving.
Currently five miles of elevated guideway work for the Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation in the Waipahu area are nearing completion and guideway support columns are going up through the Kamehameha Highway corridor.
To date, half of HART’s contracts have been awarded, and include awards to signatory contractors Hawaiian Dredging Construction and Nan Inc. All remaining contracts are expected to be assigned by the middle of 2016. Currently, HART’s projected cost is about $6 billion.
