CITY DEDICATES MIDDLE STREET INTERMODAL CENTER

 

 

(Tues., Oct. 25, 2011)—Mayor Peter Carlisle and City officials today dedicated the Middle Street Intermodal Center, located at the intersection of Middle Street and Kamehameha Highway and adjacent to the existing Kalihi-Palama Transit Facility.

 

The Middle Street Intermodal Center is comprised of several projects. It includes the Handi-Van Administration and Maintenance Building, Handi-Van Parking Lot, Middle Street Transit Center, and a Park and Ride Lot.

 

The Handi-Van Administration and Maintenance Building and the Handi-Van Parking Lot were dedicated in previous years. Today, the City acknowledged the completion of the Middle Street Transit Center and its Park and Ride lot.

 

This project includes bays for staging buses and an expanded transit center to replace the existing bus service center. The passenger platform has a customer service center, which will issue bus passes and badges, a lost and found facility, two restroom buildings, a utility building, and security office. The passenger platform and customer service center are under a covered canopy with a “living wall” landscape in the center of the platform. Provisions have been made to allow connection to the future rail station at Kamehameha Highway.

 

“This is significant because the transit center demonstrates our commitment to developing our multi-modal transportation system,” said Carlisle. “The Middle Street bus facility will be an integral part of our transit system, complementing other transit facilities in Mililani, Wahiawa, Waipahu, and Waianae. This is all part of our efforts to improve TheBus service and encourage ridership, while also proceeding with a rail line that will connect Oahu’s urban core.”

 

The Middle Street Transit Center project cost $11,183,000. It was built by T. Iida Contracting. The prime consultant for the entire Middle Street Intermodal Center is Urban Works, Inc. The sub-consultants include: SSFM International, Inc., Nakamura Oyama & Associates, Inc., Notkin Hawaii, Inc., and Masa Fujioka & Associates, Inc.
