What’s there now:
Kapahulu Avenue connects Waikiki with the H1 and Kaimuki. The space along Kapahulu is mostly occupied by small businesses, while houses and apartment buildings inhabit the local streets behind Kapahulu. The street is popular with pedestrians, motor vehicles, and recreational cyclists bound for Diamond Head or local bike shop IT&B. Kapahulu is one of the few mauka-makai through streets in the area. Currently there is no bike infrastructure on Kapahulu.
What the Oahu Bike Plan calls for:
The Bike Plan calls for the entirety of Kapahulu Avenue to be turned into a bike route. A route here would ease travel for cyclists between Kaimuki and Waikiki, and connect to the existing bike path on Date Street, the bike lanes in Waikiki, and the planned bike infrastructure on Waialae. The Oahu Bike Plan designates Kapahulu Avenue as a short-range implementation project.
What’s being done:
Current Department of Design and Construction plans for the area include sharrows for selected segments of Kaphulu. Work on the road is planned to begin in 2014.
