The proposed project consists of a new pedestrian and bicycle crossing of the Ala Wai Canal in the vicinity of University Avenue, connecting to the Ala Wai Promenade on the makai side and the Ala Wai Park Path and University Avenue on the mauka side.
The Ala Wai Alternatives Analysis was conducted in 2018-2019 to identify, develop, and evaluate whether and how to provide additional access over the Ala Wai Canal and enhance connection between the Waikiki, Ala Moana, and McCully/Moiliili neighborhoods. Alternatives included a new bridge; enhancements to one existing bridges; other crossing types (i.e. aerial tram); and a no build alternative. A new bridge in the vicinity of University Avenue was identified as the preferred alternative.
The environmental process is underway, with scheduled public release of a Draft Environmental Assessment (EA) on March 23, 2021. The publication in the Office of Environmental Quality Control (OEQC) Environmental Notice will kick off a 30-day public review period for the project. Once the Draft EA is published, a link to the document will be posted on this site, and subscribers to the Ala Pono mailing list will be notified via email.

Contractor currently working on Kapolei Parkway crossing between Renton Road and Kolowaka Drive. Crossing work to continue to the end of February 2021. Work will then move to constructing a bikeway between Philippine Sea Road and Kapolei Parkway. Bridgework will start when all the required permits are obtained. Estimated completion of the project from Philippine Sea Road to Waipahu Depot Road is Spring 2023.
The Contractor building the Leeward Bikeway determined that minor design changes were going to be required at the Kapakahi and Waikele bridges in Waipahu due to unanticipated utility services crossing the bridges. The contractor now will start construction at Philippine Sea and Renton Rd in Ewa and work east. We need the West Loch Shoreline Path rehabilitated as soon as possible. Please call the Mayor’s office and ask that the West Loch Shared Use Path and Bridge be rehabilitated before the Leeward Bikeway is completed.
Council Chair Emeritus Ron Menor was informed by the Managing Director of Honolulu that the City is unable to use CIP funds appropriated in the FY 2020 Budget to rehabilitate the West Loch Shared Use Path and Bridge because the Petition for Designation of Easements between the City and the WLF Association has not completed the Land Court process. This could take up to 2 years. This excuse is disingenuous. There are 2 miles of pathway and the bridge over Honouliuli Stream that is not affected by the Easement process. Please call the Mayor’s office and ask that the West Loch Shared Use Path and Bridge be rehabilitated before the Leeward Bikeway is completed.
The HDOT has selected a contractor to complete phase 1 of the Leeward Bikeway. Work should begin mid 2020 and be completed in 2022
November 17, 2019
The HDOT is in the process of bidding out the Leeward Bikeway work with an approximate completion date of mid-2021. In sept 2018 the Ewa Neighborhood Board #23 approved a resolution asking the City to procure the funding and to complete needed work to restore and maintain the Kapapapuhi Shoreline Park Shared Use Path including replacing the metal catwalk bridge crossing Honouliuli Stream. Bill 11 (2019) provided the 1.98 million in funding to repave the pathway and replace the bridge.
With the Leeward Bikeway project moving forward I ask that you call or email Mayor Caldwell and ask him to release $1.98 million to repair and refurbish the Kapapapuhi Shoreline Park Path and Bridge.
