Kapolei-based Kiewit Pacific Co. has been awarded a $482.9 million contract for the first phase of construction for the Honolulu rail transit project.
Mayor Mufi Hannemann announced at a press conference Wednesday the design-build contract for the 6.5-mile phase covering Kapolei to Pearl Highlands.
The contract, the first of several, came in $90 million less than estimated, Hannemann said. The city had expected the design-build contract to cost $570 million.
