Kahaluu is an area on the northern half of Oahu. According to its neighborhood board, Kahaluu runs from Heeia Fish Pond in the south to Kaaawa Valley Road in the north. The area is largely rural, though as Kaneohe is approached the area becomes more residential. The major roads through the area are Kamehameha Highway and Kahekili Highway. There are currently no bikeways in Kahaluu, though cyclists often ride recreationally along Kamehameha Highway and Kahekili Highway.
What the Oahu Bike Plan calls for:
The Oahu Bike Plan has modest goals for Kahaluu. The plan offers only four projects in the area: two projects on Kamehameha Highway, a route on Kahekili Highway, and a route on Wailehua Road in Kahaluu Town. The Oahu Bike Plan designates the projects in Kahaluu as low or medium priority.
- Kahekili Highway, Kamehameha Highway to Haiku Road, Route
- Kamehameha Highway (Kahaluu), Waiahole Valley Road to Kahekili Highway, Route
- Kamehameha Highway (North Kaneohe), Kahekili Highway to Haiku Road, Route
- Wailehua Road, Wailehua-Ahilama-Waihee, Route
What’s being done:
Repaving is scheduled to begin on Kamehameha Highway from Kahekili Highway to Haiku Road in 2014 but the city is not expected to include bike infrastructure in their construction. There are currently no plans to implement any of the other projects in Kahaluu.
