Sterling Construction Company, Inc. Has Been Selected to Construct a $32.8 Million Highway Project in Hawaii

Sterling Construction Company, Inc. (NasdaqGS: STRL), ("Sterling" or the "Company") today announced that its subsidiary, Road and Highway Builders, LLC, was notified that it was the apparent low bidder on a $32.8 million construction project on the Island of Hawaii for the Federal Land Highway Division of the U.S. Department of Transportation. Project construction is expected to begin late in the third quarter of 2009 and last approximately 24 months. The scope of the construction consists of the rebuilding of a 2-lane highway on Saddle Road, including excavation, embankment, asphalt paving and new drainage.

Joseph P. Harper, Sr., Sterling’s President and COO, said, “We are pleased to add this project to our backlog. Rich Buenting, RHB’s President, has been keeping an eye on this market for some time and one of our senior project managers has worked previously for this owner. This is the second of a series of projects to be built on the Big Island and we hope the first of many for us. As we have always said, we will continue to be opportunistic in these difficult economic times and look forward to this new challenge.”

Sterling is a leading heavy civil construction company that specializes in the building and reconstruction of transportation and water infrastructure in large and growing markets in Texas, Nevada and other states where there are bidding opportunities. Its transportation infrastructure projects include highways, roads, bridges and light rail and its water infrastructure projects include water, wastewater and storm drainage systems.
