Bikeway Meeting 1/13 6pm
at Blaisdell Center, Hawaii Suites
Come out to show your support!
The City is holding a public meeting on the planned protected bike lanes on South Street and Halekauwila Street, and evaluation of King Street.
The City plans to construct the South Street protected bike lane in coming the months, but is looking for more feedback.This will be our second protected bike lane and is a crucial part of the City’s work to build the Minimum Grid of protected bikeways we need to make cycling truly accessible to all. The bikeway has faced opposition from a single, but very vocal landowner. So it’s crucial that we have many supportive voices in the room! This is the second public meeting on South Street – 200 supporters came out to first! Let’s bring out even more this time!
The meeting will also cover a 2-way protected bike lane on Halekauwila Street between Richards Street and Ward Avenue. The project will be constructed with the rail work.
Last but not least, the meeting will include opportunity for comments on the King Street protected bike lane. Let’s not forget that this beloved bikeway, which has almost doubled cycling in one short year, is a two-year pilot project. King Street was a giant leap forward in making our community more bicycle friendly. Let’s make sure it’s permanent!
P.s. Don’t forget to join our King St PBL volunteer clean-up before the meeting.
