What’s there now:
Kaahumanu Street runs from Neal S. Blaisdell Park up into the mountains above Pearl City. It crosses Kamehameha Highway, the H1, and Moanalua Road. Mostly residential along its mauka half, beneath the H1 freeway the road features a bustling commercial sector with supermarkets, restaurants, and banks. Along its entire length the road is relatively wide, fitting four lanes of travel and two lanes of parking comfortably. Speeds on the road are limited to twenty-five miles per hour. Although the Pearl Harbor Bike Path runs at the foot of Kaahumanu Street, there is currently no dedicated bike infrastructure on Kaahumanu Street itself.
What the Oahu Bike Plan calls for:
The Oahu Bike Plan calls for Kaahumanu to be fitted with bike lanes from Komo Mai Drive to Kamehameha Highway. The project would produce just over a mile of bike lanes and cost an estimated $116,718. Bike lanes along Kaahumanu Street would connect to the existing Pearl Harbor Bike Path, connect to planned bikeways on Noelani Street and Moanalua Road, and provide a safe means of travel from the residences of Waimalu to its shopping district. As an interim measure, the Oahu Bike Plan suggests adding sharrows to the road. The Oahu Bike Plan designates Kaahumanu Street as a priority one project and slates it for short-range implementation.
What’s being done:
There are currently no plans to install bike infrastructure on Kaahumanu Street.
