What’s there now:
10th Avenue runs from Waialae Avenue to Palolo Avenue, providing access to the neighborhood of Palolo. The area around 10th Avenue is generally residential, though there are shops and a school along the avenue. The road is two lanes for its length with a sidewalk and enough width to accommodate street parking. There is currently no bike infrastructure on 10th Avenue.
What the Oahu Bike Plan calls for:
The Oahu Bike Plan calls for 10th Avenue to be turned into a bike route from Alohea Avenue to its terminus in the back of Palolo. The planned project would create 2.62 miles of bike route at an estimated cost of $131,237. The project would connect to planned bike lanes on Waialae and a planned route on the other side of Palolo Valley along Palolo Avenue,. The route would cater to the many cyclists who use 10th Avenue for their travel from the valley to Kaimuki or nearby UH and Chaminade. The Oahu Bike Plan designates 10th Avenue as a high priority project and slates it for short-range implementation.
What’s being done:
There are currently no plans to implement the planned infrastructure on Palolo Avenue.
