McCully and Moiliili are a pair of neighborhoods in the heart of urban Honolulu between Manoa and Waikiki that together form the neighborhood board district of McCully-Moiliili. According to its neighborhood board, McCully-Moiliili runs from the H1 Freeway to the Ala Wai Canal and from Kalakaua Avenue to the Manoa-Palolo Stream. Housing in the area generally consists of small apartment buildings or single-level homes. A number of parks, most notably Old Stadium park and Ala Wai Park, are in the area. King Street, Kapiolani Boulevard, University Avenue, and Beretania Street form the major roads in the area and host a number of small businesses. The neighborhood has some modest bike infrastructure, mostly consisting of bike lanes on University Avenue, a bike path along Ala Wai Park, a poor quality bike route on McCully, and a bike route on Young Street. Because of its proximity to the University of Hawaii and Waikiki, many cyclists travel through the Moiliili and McCully area.
What the Oahu Bike Plan calls for:
The Oahu Bike Plan calls for the addition of bike lanes on most of the major roads in the area. Bike lanes are to be added to Beretania, King Street, McCully (which has a history of bike/car accidents), Young Street, and Isenberg Street. Since Moiliili and McCully occupy such a central place in Honolulu, the bike infrastructure here will form the heart of many of the planned bikeways in Honolulu. Because of their importance to the overall network of bikeways, the Oahu Bike Plan designates the majority of the projects in Moiliili and McCully as priority one (high priority).
