Hawaii Department of Transportation awards Sterling Construction $40m highway project


The Hawaii Department of Transportation has awarded Sterling Construction Company’s subsidiary Road and Highway Builders a $40m highway project.

The given project is a heavy civil contract to reconstruct 2.67 miles of the Pali Highway on the island of Oahu, in Hawaii.

The reconstruction work of this stretch of highway involves both creative phasing as well as full depth reconstruction in some areas to reduce impacts to all the commuters using this highway.

Sterling CEO Joe Cutillo said: “We welcome the opportunity to perform construction work on the Pali Highway, which is one of the most scenic drives in United States given its elevation and the commanding views of Oahu. The highway provides a direct route from Oahu’s south-east coast to the city of Honolulu and is crucial for both passenger and commercial cross-island transport. Our work will help to alleviate the traffic and congestion on this widely travelled highway. Our RHB business has extensive experience in working in the challenging Oahu terrain which has enabled us to win another highly attractive project in the Hawaiian Islands.”

The Pali Highway project leverages Sterling’s various capabilities such as excavation work, asphalt paving and traffic maintenance.

Sterling Construction Company comprises several subsidiaries through which it operates in three segments: heavy civil, speciality services and residential projects.

Heavy civil works include infrastructure and rehabilitation for roads, highways, bridges, ports, airfields, light rail, water, wastewater and storm drainage systems.

Residential projects include laying concrete foundations for single-family tenements.

Specialty services include construction site excavation along with drainage, drilling and blasting works, and building foundations for parking structures, multi-family homes and other commercial concrete projects.

Sterling’s primary areas of operations in the US include the Rocky Mountain States, southern US, California and Hawaii, apart from many other areas that offer strategic construction opportunities.
