Queen Kaahumanu Highway Widening History

The Queen K project was supposed to start in 2008 and take 2 years to complete,
Goodfellow was awarded project in mid-2010, and was ultimately looking at starting construction in early 2011. However, the state's consultant found a significant archaeological site near the right of way by Kaloko Honokohau National Park. That caused the NPS to ultimately intervene in the project. This led to a 4 year Section 106 consultation process with NPS and various Native Hawaiian Organizations.
Construction started in September 2015, and was supposed to wrap in September 2017. However, there was two slowdowns that occurred that delayed the project roughly six months. Both of them involved the state and the contractor not working together to process design changes and increased costs. The second slowdown was the result of the contractor's accidental intrusion on sensitive archaeological sites near the right of way.
The contractor, and the state, have shown great teamwork to get this project done in timely manner since the end of the last slowdown in January 2017
