Sterling Construction Company, Inc. Awarded a Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation Project Valued at Approximately $26 Million

THE WOODLANDS, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Sterling Construction Company, Inc. (STRL) (“Sterling” or the "Company”) today announced that its subsidiary, Road and Highway Builders, LLC was awarded a $26 million project from the Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation (HART) to perform reconstruction work on the King Kamehameha Highway in Pearl City, Hawaii. The project is expected to commence in August of 2018 with a construction duration of approximately one year.

The King Kamehameha Highway is one of the main highways serving suburban and rural O‘ahu. Starting from Nimitz Highway near Pearl Harbor and Hickam Air Force Base in Honolulu, it serves the island's older western suburbs, turning north across the O‘ahu Central Valley to the North. Sterling’s scope of work for the current project includes the resurfacing of the highway along the path of guideway construction through Pearl City and Aiea. Additionally, the project will entail road widening, improvements to intersections, minor utility improvements, traffic signal work, turning loops, and curb and gutter work.

Joe Cutillo, Sterling’s Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We completed smaller projects focused on milling and paving and safety improvements on the King Kamehameha Highway during 2015 and 2016. We are pleased that our solid execution on those jobs has led to additional, larger opportunities and we are looking forward to working with HART on enhancing this important element of the transportation infrastructure for O‘ahu motorists.”
