What’s there now:
Kalakaua runs from Beretania Street to Diamond Head Road, traveling through the very heart of Waikiki. As one of the few streets that enter Waikiki, Kalakaua plays host to a bustling mix of pedestrians, automobiles, bikes, and buses. Multi-lane for its entire length, speeds along the avenue are limited by law to twenty-five miles per hour. Currently, bike lanes run almoalong the avenue from Ala Moana Boulevard all the way to Diamond Head Road.
What the Oahu Bike Plan calls for:
The Oahu Bike Plan calls for bike lanes to be placed from Ala Moana Boulevard to Diamond Head Road, a bike route to be created from Beretania to Ala Moana Boulevard, and a crosswalk or signal to be placed at the Ala Wai Bridge in order to connect the existing bike path along the Ala Wai Promenade. In late 2012, the bike lanes from Ala Moana to Diamond Head were finished, completing one segment of the bike plan. The cost for creating a bike route from Beretania to Ala Moana Boulevard is $49,078 and will create just under a mile of infrastructure. The cost for a light at the Ala Wai Promenade crossing is estimated to be $200,000. The Oahu Bike Plan designates these improvements as priority one and slates them for short-range implementation
What’s being done:
While bike lanes have been added from Ala Moana Boulevard to Diamond Head Road, there are currently no plans to implement the other planned infrastructure on Kalakaua Avenue.
