What’s there now:
Kalaheo Avenue runs across Kailua, connecting the neighborhoods of Aikahi and Lanikai. While the area around Kalaheo Avenue is almost completely residential, the proximity of Kalaheo to the ocean attracts many tourists. The southernmost and northernmost sections of Kalaheo Avenue are designated as a bike route. The road is two lanes wide for its length and speeds are limited to thirty miles per hour.
What the Oahu Bike Plan calls for:
The Oahu Bike Plan calls for the entire length of Kalaheo Avenue to be turned into a bike route. The project would add 2.12 miles to the existing bike routes mainly through improvements to the shoulder of Kalaheo. The project would connect to existing bike lanes on Kainui Road and Kailua Road and create a viable route for cyclists between Aikahi and Lanikai. The route would expand upon Kailua’s existing network of bike lanes and paths. The Oahu Bike Plan designates Kalaheo Avenue as a priority one and short-range implementation project.
What’s being done:
There are currently no plans to install bikeways on Kalaheo Avenue.
