DRAFT OAHU BIKE PLAN RELEASED

 

Mayor Mufi Hannemann today announced that the City’s Draft 2009 Oahu Bike Plan is now available for public review and comment.

 

“The plan covers the entire island of Oahu and provides recommendations to improve the integration of bicycles into the City and County of Honolulu’s existing and future transportation system, to guide Oahu in becoming a more bicycle-friendly community,” Hannemann said.

 

The plan focuses on the themes of improved safety; increased bicycle amenities; increased connectivity and accessibility throughout the island; and social acceptance of bicycling.  The plan also identifies specific programs and policies to institutionalize bicycle planning into Oahu’s transportation and land use planning process. The Plan identifies bikeway projects needed to create a fully integrated bikeway network, to ensure connected and accessible bikeways are available throughout the island. 

 

The City welcomes public comments on the Draft Plan.  The plan can be accessed at the project website www.oahubikeplan.org, where comments may be submitted and will be accepted through August 31, 2009.  Comments can also be e-mailed or mailed to the addresses below.
