What’s there now:
Palolo Avenue runs from Waialae Avenue to 10th Avenue, providing access to the neighborhood of Palolo. The area around Palolo Avenue is generally residential, though there are shops and a park along the avenue. The road is two lanes for its length with a sidewalk and enough width to accommodate street parking. There is currently no bike infrastructure on Palolo Avenue.
What the Oahu Bike Plan calls for:
The Oahu Bike Plan calls for Palolo Avenue to be turned into a bike route. The planned project would create 2.83 miles of bike route at an estimated cost of $141,643. The project would connect to planned bike lanes on Waialae and a planned route on the other side of Palolo along 10th Avenue. The route would cater to the many cyclists who use Palolo Avenue for their travel from the valley to Kaimuki or nearby UH and Chaminade. The Oahu Bike Plan designates Palolo Avenue as a priority one and short-range implementation project.
What’s being done:
There are currently no plans to implement the planned infrastructure on Palolo Avenue.
