What’s there now:
Salt Lake Boulevard runs from Puuloa Road to Kamehameha Highway, connecting the neighborhoods of Salt Lake with wider Oahu. The road is wide at its ends, ballooning to six lanes as it approaches Aloha Stadium, but a narrow two lanes at its center. Some bike lanes have already been placed on the Diamond Head end of Salt Lake Boulevard though they end after Ala Lilikoi Street.
What the Oahu Bike Plan calls for:
The Oahu Bike Plan calls for 2.54-miles of bike lanes to be put onto Salt Lake Boulevard, completing the existing bike lanes at a cost of $355,795. The lanes would not only connect to the existing lanes on Salt Lake Boulevard but also to planned bikeways on Ala Lilikoi Street, Bougainville Drive, and Kamehameha Highway. Given the high speeds and heavy traffic along much of the road, a bike lane here would not only ease commuting for cyclists but also improve safety.
What’s being done:
There are currently no plans to construct the planned infrastructure on Salt Lake Boulevard.
