What’s There Now:
Piikoi runs from Ala Moana Beach Park to Wilder Avenue, connecting major roadways such as the H1, Beretania Street, Kapiolani Boulevard, King Street, and Ala Moana Boulevard and popular destinations like Ala Moana Shopping Center and Ala Moana Beach Park. One way for the majority of its length, the road is wide featuring four lanes of travel and parking along much of its side. As H1, King Street, and Beretania are approached congestion increases, often resulting in stop-and-go traffic, particularly at rush hour. As the moment there are no bikeways on Piikoi Street.
What the Oahu Bike Plan calls for:
A bike route consisting of sharrows is proposed for Piikoi Street. Running from Wilder to Ala Moana Boulevard, the proposed route would cost an estimated $59,881 and measure 1.2 miles. The width of Piikoi, particularly between Kapiolani Boulevard and King Street, suggests that a bike lane might be comfortably fitted on the road instead. The Oahu Bike Plan lists Piikoi as a short-range implementation project.
What’s being done:
At the moment there are no plans to implement bike infrastructure on Piikoi Street, though the Department of Tranpsortation Services has voiced tentative interest in exploring the idea of a bike lane or cycle track along the road. The Department of Design and Construction is currently repaving a section of Piikoi Street but has elected not to include the planned bikeways in their construction.
