What’s there now:
Kapolei Parkway begins near the ocean, travels through Ewa and Kapolei, and dead-ends in the fields north of Kapolei. The road is wide, featuring three lanes in each direction. A grassy median separates the road and sidewalks run down each side. The road connects a variety of local roads. A number of bikeways already exist on Kapolei Parkway including a few miles of bike paths and bike lanes.
What the Oahu Bike Plan calls for:
The Oahu Bike Plan calls for a bike lane to ultimately be installed from Fort Barrette Road to Keoneula Boulevard. The lane would run 4.1 miles and cost an estimated $471,500. A lane here would act as the backbone for the planned network of bikeways in the area, connecting Ewa and Kapolei. The lane would also complement the relatively extensive network of lanes and paths already existing in Kapolei. As an interim measure, the Oahu Bike Plan suggests that sharrows be installed. The Oahu Bike Plan and the Mayor’s Advisory Committee on Bicycling both select Kapolei Parkway as short-range implementation project.
What’s being done:
There are currently no plans to build more bikeways on Kapolei Parkway.
