Pearl City is a neighborhood on the western side of Honolulu, located above Pearl Harbor. Its neighborhood board boundaries define Pearl City as the area between the H2 and Kaahumanu Street. Like many neighborhoods in Honolulu, Pearl City runs from the ocean to the ridge-line of the mountains, with commercial activity clustered at the makai side and residences in the mountains above. The neighborhood is home to Pearl City and Pearl Highlands Shopping Centers. The neighborhood has some modest bikeways, most notably the Pearl Harbor Bike Path on its makai end and a bike lane on Kuala Street.
What the Oahu Bike Plan calls for:
The Oahu Bike Plan seeks to complete multiple projects in Pearl City. A bike lane along Waimano Home Road would serve as the major axis of mauka-makai bound cycle traffic, connecting the Pearl Harbor Bike Path, planned bikeways on Kamehameha Highway and Moanalua Road, and the upper reaches of residential Pearl City. Bike lanes on Kamehameha Highway and Moanalua Road will connect to planned bike routes leading across Honolulu. Completion of the bike lanes on Kuala Street will allow commuters to travel from the future site of the rail station into Pearl City. The Oahu Bike Plan designates Kuala Street, Lehua Avenue, Moanalua Road, and a planned bike route on Noelani Street as high priority.
