“We welcome the opportunity to perform construction work on the Pali Highway, which is one of the most scenic drives in the United States given its elevation and the commanding views of Oahu,” stated Joe Cutillo, Sterling’s CEO. “The highway provides a direct route from Oahu’s south-east coast to the city of Honolulu and is crucial for both passenger and commercial cross-island transport. Our work will help to alleviate the traffic and congestion on this widely traveled highway. Our RHB business has extensive experience in working in the challenging Oahu terrain which has enabled us to win another highly attractive project in the Hawaiian Islands.”
