What’s there now:
Moanalua Road runs from Aloha Stadium, across Waimalu, and into Pearl City where it ends at Waimano Home Road. This busy road has multiple lanes of traffic, much of it supplied by the nearby H1 Freeway. The road passes through a mix of residential and commercial areas, with notable locations being Pearlridge Shopping Center and Aiea Elementary. Speeds are limited to thirty-five mile per hour. There is currently no bike infrastructure on Moanalua Road.
What the Oahu Bike Plan calls for:
The Oahu Bike Plan calls for several projects to be completed on Moanalua Road. The projects would add bike lanes to the entirety of Moanalua Road except between Kaahumanu Street and Hoomalu Street by the H1 on- and off-ramps. The estimated cost for these projects is $904,952 for 3.79 miles of bike lanes. The lanes on Moanalua would form the backbone of the regional transport network for cyclists in the area. Using Moanalua Road cyclists would be able to travel between Pearl City and Aiea in relative safety. The projects on Moanalua Road would connect to planned bike lanes on multiple streets. The Oahu Bike Plan designates the projects planned for Moanalua Road from Kaahumanu Street to Aiea Heights Drive and from Hoomalu Street to Waimano Home Road as high priority projects.
What’s being done:
There are currently no plans to install bike lanes on Moanalua Road.
