AECOM wins Honolulu rail contract

AECOM Technical Services Inc. was awarded a $38.8 million contract by the Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation (HART) to design the airport section of the mass-transit system's elevated railway.

AECOM, with offices in Honolulu, Los Angeles and New York, will design a 5.2-mile section of the system from Aloha Stadium to the Middle Street Transit Center in Kalihi by the spring of 2013, HART said in a statement.

The work includes designing the elevated rail and the pillars to support that track. Construction work won't be awarded until AECOM completes its design.

Once it's completed, the $5.1 billion rail system will stretch 20 miles from Kapolei to downtown. It is scheduled to open in phases and be completed in 2019.
