What’s there now:
Isenberg Street runs across Moiliili from Kapiolani Boulevard to Bingham Street. The area around Isenberg is a mix of residences and small businesses. The speed limit on this street is twenty-five miles per hour and several pedestrian crossings and lights break up the street. The street connects to Beretania and King Street and Moiliili Neighborhood Park and Old Stadium Park are both along its run. The street is two lanes on its mauka side but expands to four wide lanes of travel and two lanes of parking on its makai side. There is currently no bike infrastructure on Isenberg Street.
What the Oahu Bike Plan calls for:
The Oahu Bike Plan calls for the section of Isenberg from King Street to Coyne Street to be turned into a bike route and the section makai of King Street to be fitted with a bike lane. The project would connect to planned bike lanes on Beretania and King Street, complete a bike route along Coyne and Varsity Place, and provide access to the planned bike lanes and existing bike route on Young Street. The Oahu Bike Plan and the Mayor’s Advisory Committee on Bicycling designate the bike route on the mauka section of Isenberg Street as a short-range and high priority project. The bike lanes on the makai side of Isenberg are a low priority project.
What’s being done:
The Department of Transportation Services, as part of their addition of sharrows to nearby Coyne Street and Varsity Place, is planning to add sharrows from King Street to Coyne Street. There are currently no plans to install bike lanes from King Street to Kapiolani.
