Isemoto submits lowest bids for bypass project

By 67AM KPUA News

KAILUA-KONA, Hawaii (AP) Bids to complete the Mamalahoa bypass on Hawaii's Big Island are slightly higher than estimated, while bids for the second half of the project have come in lower than expected.

West Hawaii Today says Isemoto Contracting Co. Ltd. submitted the lowest bids.

The second half of the project calls for building an intersection at the Napoopoo Road junction with the Mamalahoa Highway.

Isemoto estimated $13.5 million to $14.8 million for a road, and the company submitted bid of $13.1 million for the intersection work.

Hawaii County officials, meanwhile, are waiting for a federal ruling on whether to proceed with foreclosure procedures on 80 lots.

The county has a mortgage on the property. The property was used to secure $20 million owed after developers failed to complete the bypass road.
