ADVOCATES NEEDED

Those new bike lanes and the 3-Foot Passing Law didn’t just happen.  And they wouldn’t have happened without Advocates like you joining the fight. Consideration for people to bike simply isn’t a high priority for most folks here, with most everything being about cars. With 365 days of good weather, limited space, a need to improve health, to provide equitable transportation, and to care about sustainability, biking more and driving less makes tons of sense. Changes need to be made to encourage and enable that. But change is hard. Advocates push for change anyway.

KE’EAUMOKU COMPLETE STREETS

Honolulu’s busy Ke’eaumoku Street was originally designed to optimize motor vehicle traffic flow.  The City has now identified it as a “Complete Street” project to implement a new street design that balances the needs of those who walk, bike, use a wheelchair, ride transit or use a car.  Learn more and weigh in here.

CURRENT INITIATIVES

Support New Bike Lanes on S King, Punchbowl and Richards 

The densification of Downtown will require a sustainable transportation network within, including transportation alternatives for those who can’t or don’t wish to use a car for all of their daily trips. With this transformation, Honolulu can realize the social, economic, and environmental benefits of becoming a more safe and walkable city.

PETITION TO RECONSTRUCT & MAINTAIN BIKE PATHS/LANES

Maintenance of bike lanes and paths is extremely lacking on Oahu, to the point where some are too dangerous to bike and walk on. HBL members often say they are in such disrepair that they are unusable. The asphalt is cracked, there are potholes, roots pushing up, trash all over, lack of good lighting, etc. People report falling and getting injured. It is a liability to the city.

PETITION TO RECONSTRUCT THE BIKE PATH AT SUNSET BEACH

The bike path, known as Ke Ala Pupukea, was built nearly 30 years ago, and extends 3.5 miles through Sunset Beach. Due to aging, salt and sun damage, wear and tear, and tree roots pushing up the asphalt, the time has come to reconstruct this well-utilized path. It is dangerous.

O‘AHU BIKE PLAN

Created by the City, this identifies specific projects, policies, and programs to continue to grow ridership by providing a network of safe, low-stress bikeways on the island of O‘ahu.

COMPLETE STREETS

Complete Streets are streets that work for everyone, safely moving people while balancing the needs of all roadway users, such as pedestrians, bicyclists, transit riders, and motorists. Complete streets are safe, convenient, and accessible for all, regardless of how one gets around, age, or ability.
