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.
The next work day for Kapapapuhi Shoreline Park is December 14, 2019. Please check out all the work that has been happening. We are removing tons of invasive mangrove. Go to HOH808 Facebook or website

The Hawaii Department of Transportation Contract Office has put out a Notice to Bidders to build phase 1 of the Leeward Bikeway earlier this month. The plan is to select a contractor early 2020 with the goal of completing construction in 2021. The work involves rebuilding 2 bridges and moving utilities and of course paving a pathway. When the work is completed, one will be able to walk, run or bike from the Hawaiian Railway Society located at Philippine Sea Road and Renton Road to Aloha Stadium on a shared use pathway without motor vehicles.
