What’s there now:
Kilauea Avenue is a collector, taking traffic from the residential areas of Kahala and Diamond Head and bringing them to the H1 and Kalanianaole Highway. The street has Kapiolani Community College on its steep Ewa end and Kahala Mall on its mauka side. The road is wide and ranges from two lanes in each direction separated at Kahala Mall to one lane in each direction by KCC. There is currently no bike infrastructure on Kilauea.
What the Oahu Bike Plan calls for:
The bike plan calls for a bike route to be developed along Kilauea from Waialae Avenue to Makapuu Avenue. The route would serve cyclists headed from their residences to Kahala Mall as well as the many recreational cyclists that pass through the area. The project would connect to planned bike lanes on Makapuu Avenue, existing lanes on Kalanianaole Highway, and more generally, bike infrastructure planned for the Diamond Head area. The wide streets of Kilauea, however, suggest that it may be possible to put a bike lane on Kilauea. The Oahu Bike Plan designates Kilauea Avenue as a short-range implementation project.
What’s being done:
There are currently no plants to implement the Oahu Bike Plan on Kilauea Avenue.
