Feedback wanted on Complete Streets plans in Kaneohe, Kailua, Pearl City

Local News

Several events are planned in an effort to make roads safer and better serve communities on Oahu.

Complete Streets is a transportation and design approach to create a comprehensive, integrated network of streets that are safe for all people, whether traveling by foot, bicycle, transit, or automobile.

The City and County of Honolulu adopted the Complete Streets ordinance in 2012, which changed how it planned, designed, and constructed its streets.

Now, officials are turning their attention to streets in Kaneohe, Kailua, and Pearl City.

“I urge residents to take advantage of these upcoming events so they learn more about the city’s Complete Streets program, as we also learn from them regarding their needs and wants,” said Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell.

Several meetings are planned to inform the public and gather feedback on the following areas:

Kaneohe: Kamehameha Highway from Likelike Highway to Kahekili Highway, Haiku Road and Kahuhipa Street between Kahekili Highway and Kamehameha Highway, and Kaneohe Bay Drive between Mokapu Saddle Road and Mokapu Boulevard. Keaahala Road between Kahekili Highway and Kamehameha Highway will also be studied.

Kailua: Kailua Road, Kalaheo Avenue, Kuulei Road, Mokulua Drive, Oneawa Street, Kihapai Street, and Mokapu Road. Kainalu Drive and Maluniu Avenue will also be studied.

Pearl City: Waimano Home Road, and area network roadways including Noelani Street, Hoomalu Street, and Hoolaulea Street, along with Moanalua Road, will also be studied.

Solutions being considered include, but are not limited to:

  • Pedestrian safety improvements
  • Dedicated bicycle facilities
  • Improvements to better accommodate transit users
  • Traffic signal timing
  • Streetscape features to improve the walking environment and livability of the community
