What’s there now:
This long, twisting road runs the length of Hawaii Kai, connecting businesses, residences, and schools to Kalanianaole Highway. The road varies along its length from four lanes at its makai ends to singletrack at the peak of its mauka loop. The road serves as a popular route for recreational cyclists headed along the scenic east shore of Oahu. Currently there is no bike infrastructure on Hawaii Kai Drive.
What the Oahu Bike Plan calls for:
The Oahu Bike Plan calls for a 1.8-mile bike route to be created along Hawaii Kai Drive from Wailua Street to Lunalilo Home Road at an estimated cost of $190,951. The route would take advantage of Hawaii Kai Drive’s slower, more residential sections while providing a scenic route for recreational cyclists and connectivity for commuters headed down towards the bike lanes on Kalanianaole Highway.
What’s being done:
There are currently no plans to implement bike infrastructure on Hawaii Kai Drive.
