What’s there now:
Beretania is a major arterial street for Honolulu, connecting the Moilili, Makiki, and Downtown sectors. One way for almost all its length, Beretania features multiple lanes for all of its three miles and has on street parking in many places. Businesses, residences, parks, schools, and government buildings all share space along Beretania as do pedestrians, buses, cyclists, and cars. Despite the streets importance for travel in Honolulu it currently has no infrastructure for bicycles.
What the Oahu Bike Plan calls for:
The Oahu Bike Plan calls for bike lanes to be placed down the entirety of Beretania Street. The projected cost for the bike lanes is $381,737. Bike lanes on Beretania would provide a safe, convenient route for Honolulu cyclists to travel across the city while connecting multiple planned and existing bikeways. The Oahu Bike Plan lists the section of Beretania from University Avenue to McCully Street as a short-range implementation project.
What’s being done:
The city currently has tentative plans to install a mix of bike lanes and sharrows on the Diamond Head side of Beretania. Exact location of the bike lanes and sharrows and when they are to be completed has yet to be decided.
