Kiewit Infrastructure West has been selected to work on the Kapalama Container Terminal Phase 2 project set to begin this spring, the Hawaii Department of Transportation has announced.
The $350 million work will include waterside construction at Piers 40-43 in Honolulu Harbor, which will “add 18.5 acres of fast-land, including 1,860 linear feet of new berthing space for two container ships to dock simultaneously and up to six gantry cranes,” as well as dredging and broadening the basin between Piers 40 and 41, according to the agency. This allows for barge berthing space along Pier 41.
“The Kapalama Container Terminal project is especially exciting because it will add much needed docking and cargo space that will increase efficiency for harbor users, help reduce traffic around Honolulu Harbor, and address sea-level concerns for the facility,” said Jade Butay, director of the Hawaii Department of Transportation. “The Kapalama Container Terminal improvements is a project we can all be proud of.”
The project is expected to be done in late 2023.
“This project is proceeding at a critical time when our state needs it most as we continue fighting COVID-19 and its impacts,” said Gov. David Ige. “The work will be performed by local talent and infuse hundreds of millions of dollars into the local economy, in addition to improving our harbor system that will benefit the state for decades to come.”
