The Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation last week awarded a contract to Nan Inc. for the relocation of utility infrastructure along Dillingham Boulevard.

The utilities on that road have been long identified as critical to completing the ongoing passenger-rail project, HART officials said in a press release. The contract is valued at about $500 million, with construction expected to begin in first-quarter 2023 and conclude by first-quarter 2026.

The contract calls for relocating existing underground and/or overhead utilities along the rail alignment that could conflict with the future location of the rail guideway and columns. It also involves water, sewer, electricity, fuel, communications, storm drainage and roadway improvements, HART officials said in a press release.

Similar work is underway with contractor Frank V. Coluccio Construction Co. for utilities relocations work downtown. That project began earlier this month.

"Awarding the contract for the utility relocations for Dillingham Boulevard is a huge accomplishment ... as it is the final large contract before we get to the actual guideway and station construction through this corridor,” said HART Executive Director and CEO Lori Kahikina.
