Moanalua is a neighborhood located on the western side of urban Honolulu. Its boundaries extend from just above the H2 freeway into the mountains and from the Diamond Head side of Fort Shafter to the Diamond Head side of the H3. The area is mostly residential, though Fort Shafter, Tripler Hospital, Kaiser Hospital, and Moanalua Golf Course all call Moanalua home. Bike infrastructure in the area is limited, though there is an impressively long segment of bike lane on the uphill side of Ala Aolani Street from the mouth to the back of Moanalua Valley, and a poor quality bike path along the H2 from Moanalua Gardens Park to Ala Aolani Street.
What the Oahu Bike Plan calls for:
The Oahu Bike Plan has limited plans for Moanalua, calling for the existing bike path at the mouth of the valley to be extended across Moanalua and for a bike lane to be added along Kaua Street and Moanalua Road. The bikeways would form a crucial link in a planned route stretching from Beretania Street to Pearl City with the lane on Kaua Street forming one of a handful of viable crossings for cyclists over Kalihi and Moanalua Streams. The Oahu Bike Project designates the Moanalua projects as low priority.
