What’s there now:
Ena Road runs between Kalakaua Avenue and Ala Moana Boulevard. Less than a quarter mile in length, this road has a number of apartment buildings and small businesses along its length. Ena Road has two lanes of travel and though standing, stopping, and parking is illegal on Ena Road vehicles often stop to unload goods along the side of the wide Kalakaua bound lane.
What the Oahu Bike Plan calls for:
Plans call for the entirety of Ena Road to be transformed into a bike route through the use of sharrows and signage at an estimated cost of $10,414. A bike route here would connect to existing bike lanes on Kalakaua and cater to existing demands for alternative transportation in congested Waikiki. The Oahu Bike Plan designates Ena Road as a short-range implementation project.
What’s being done:
The Department of Transportation Services has tentative plans to add sharrows and signage to Ena Road in order to transform it into a bike route.
