Goodfellow Bros. wins contract for Big Isle highway
Goodfellow Bros. has submitted the winning $76 million design-build bid for the second phase of the Queen Kaçahumanu Highway project on the Big Island, the Hawaii Tribune-Herald reported.
The state Department of Transportation initially awarded the project to Goodfellow Bros. in July 2008. Another bidder, Kiewit Pacific, protested and the department agreed to request revised bids.
Goodfellow Bros. again won the contract in October 2008, but Hawaiian Dredging Construction Co. protested. A hearings officer agreed last year with Hawaiian Dredging that Goodfellow’s bid was flawed, but did n’o order the department to award the bid to Hawaiian Dredging.
Instead, DOT officials said all three bids had problems, so a new request for proposals was issued.
