What’s there now:
Alohea Avenue runs from the Ewa end of Kapiolani Community College to the beginning of 6th Avenue. The neighborhood around it is residential, mostly consisting of single-family homes. The street is wide, accommodating two lanes of travel, on street parking, and sidewalks on each edge. While Alohea does not currently have any cycling infrastructure, its low volume of traffic, large width, and proximity to Kapiolani Community College make it an ideal candidate for a bike route or bike lane.
What the Oahu Bike Plan calls for:
The 1999 Oahu Bike Plan called for Alohea Avenue to be fitted with bike lanes, though the current Oahu Bike Plan calls for Alohea Avenue to be transformed into a bike route. The route would ease commuting for Kapiolani Community College students and connect to other planned projects on Makapuu Avenue, Kilauea Avenue, and Diamond Head Road. The Oahu Bike Plan designates Alohea Avenue as a priority one and short-range implementation project.
What’s being done:
There are currently no plans by the city to implement the bike plan on Alohea Avenue. The Department of Design and Construction recently resurfaced the road but did not include the planned bicycle infrastructure.
