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.
