Wahiawa is a neighborhood located in the plains of central Oahu, just past Mililani on the H2 Freeway. As its neighborhood board defines it, Wahiawa is the area between Leilehua Golf Course and the northern side of Whitmore Village (including Schofield Barracks). The area is known for its military presence and pineapple fields. Access in and out of Wahiawa is provided by Kunia Road, Kamehameha Highway, and the H2 Freeway. Bikeways in the neighborhood are limited, consisting of two miles of bike route and a mile of bike lanes.
What the Oahu Bike Plan calls for:
The Oahu Bike Plan calls for modest accommodations for cyclists to be made on Wahiawa’s roads. The plan is to add bike routes to major roads like Kamehameha Highway, California Avenue, and Wilikina Drive with the hope of making the roads more attractive to cyclists headed in and out of Wahiawa. Some bike routes would be added to more minor roads, primarily to service military destinations or schools. The Oahu Bike Plan describes the projects planned for Wahiawa as medium or low priority.
