Honolulu transit agency OKs $78.9 million contract for three rail stations


The Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation (HART) awarded a $78.9 million contract to Hawaiian Dredging Construction Co. to build three rail stations in Waipahu, Hawaii, area.

The company will be responsible for constructing the Farrington Highway station group, comprising the West Loch, Waipahu Transit Center and Community College stations.

HART opened bids for the station group in March. Hawaiian Dredging Co. was the apparent low bidder, but the second-lowest bidder filed a bid protest that delayed the award by about three months, HART officials said in a statement.

The agency will begin accepting bids for the West Oahu station group June 16. Additionally, the agency will put out a request of contract bids for the Kamehameha Highway station group in August.

Originally, HART planned to award one contract for its first nine stations, but decided to break that into three separate contract packages to encourage more participation.
