What’s there now:
University Avenue runs from the Ala Wai Boulevard to East Manoa Road. This busy arterial handles traffic from the H1, the University of Hawaii, Pucks Alley, and residences of lower Manoa. The street has two to three lanes in each direction, with parked cars present along much of the road. Bike lanes are present on University Avenue, though they disappear above the H1 overpass.
What the Oahu Bike Plan calls for:
The Oahu Bike Plan calls for bike lanes to be added to University from Dole Street to Maile Way. The lanes would cost an estimated $41,302 and create 0.36 miles of new bikeways. As an interim measure, the Oahu Bike Plan suggests adding sharrows to University Avenue. Adding bike infrastructure to University Avenue would build upon the existing bike lanes on University, Dole, and Metcalf Streets, easing travel for students headed to and from the upper gate of the University of Hawaii. The Oahu Bike Plan designates University Avenue as a high priority and short-range implementation project.
What’s being done:
There are currently no plans to implement further bike infrastructure on University Avenue.
