CITY DEDICATES WAHIAWA TRANSIT CENTER

 

 

(Tues., Oct. 25, 2011)—Mayor Peter Carlisle and City officials today dedicated the Wahiawa Transit Center, a long-awaited project for Wahiawa and its surrounding community.

 

The Wahiawa Transit Center, located between Center Street and California Avenue next to the State Civic Center, includes a two-story structure. The ground level includes the bus driveways and staging area and passenger waiting areas. The second level consists of a total of 58 parking stalls. Twenty-five stalls (25) are dedicated to the staff and customers of the State Civic Center. Thirty-three (33) are available for users of TheBus park and ride. 

 

“The Wahiawa Transit Center signifies our commitment to developing our multi-modal transportation system,” said Carlisle. “It joins similar facilities in Kalihi, Mililani, Waipahu, and Waianae. We hope this transit center will become an integral part of the town with its pineapple-themed clock tower that acknowledges the significance of the pineapple industry in Wahiawa’s history.”

 

The cost of the Wahiawa project is $5,563,000. It was constructed by Honolulu Builders, LCC. The prime design and construction management consultant is AM Partners, Inc. The sub-consultants include: Hida Okamoto & Associates, Inc., Baldridge & Associates Structural Engineers, Inc., and Mechanical Engineers of Hawaii Corporation.
