What’s there now:
Cooke Street runs from South King Street to Kakaako, connecting local traffic with major arterials and serving the businesses and industries that line it. The road has two lanes of travel in each direction with parking permitted on both sides along most of its length. There is currently no bike infrastructure on Cooke Street.
What the Oahu Bike Plan calls for:
The Oahu Bike Plan calls for a bike lane to be placed down the entirety of Cooke Street at a projected cost of $87,778. The project would connect to planned bike lanes on King Street and Ala Moana Boulevard and provide a quieter alternative for mauka-makai travel than nearby Ward Street. The project would serve the two bike shops located on Cooke Street and complement the existing bike paths along the Kakaako Waterfront. The Oahu Bike Plan lists Cooke Street as a priority one and short-range implementation project.
What’s being done:
The Department of Transportation Services is considering placing bike lanes on Cooke Street, though formal plans have yet to be finalized.
