What’s there now:
Papipi Road runs from Oneula Beach Park to Fort Weaver Road in Ewa. Undeveloped along its makai end, Papipi is residential along its center and has some small to medium size businesses where it meets Fort Weaver Road by Ewa Beach Elementary School. Ranging from single-track to two lanes, the road is relatively narrow though the wide setback between the road and residences may leave room for future growth. There are currently no bike facilities on Papipi Road.
What the Oahu Bike Plan calls for:
The Oahu Bike Plan calls for Papipi Road to be transformed into a bike route along its entire length. The project is estimated to cost $91,805 and will create 0.87-miles of new bikeways. The project will connect residences to businesses along Fort Weaver Road and ease commuting for students headed towards Ewa Beach elementary by bike. The project will meet with a planned bikeway on Fort Weaver Road.
What’s being done:
While the city’s Department of Design and Construction is planning to repave Papipi Road in its entirety in 2013, they have elected not to include bike infrastructure on Papipi Road. Currently no other government agency involved in road construction plans to install the requested infrastructure on Papipi Road.
