On August 9, 2018 John Rogers presented a resolution to the Ewa Neighborhood Board Number 23 requesting that the City and County of Honolulu prioritize the repair of the West Loch Shoreline Park Pathway and Honouliuli Bridge. The Ewa Neighborhood Board adopted the resolution.
The plan as late as this summer was that the Leeward Bikeway Phase 1 was to start construction early 2019. I have been informed that negotiations between the State of Hawaii Department of Transportation (HDOT) and the State Historic Preservation Division (SHPD) and the Hawaiian Railway Society (HRS) have broken down. In order for the HDOT to complete the Environmental Assessment an agreement has to be completed with SHPD and HRS to comply with the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) Section 106. It seems that the HDOT does not want to accommodate what some would consider reasonable demands by the SHPD and HRS to ensure that the historical value will be enhanced with the building of the Leeward Bikeway.

John Rogers is going to present to the Ewa Neighborhood Board on the condition of the bike path and surrounding park and request they adopt a resolution requesting that the City prioritize the path’s repair. When the DOT finishes the Leeward Bikeway Phase I (set to breakground in 2019), this connected with the West Loch path and Pearl Harbor Bike Path will create a continuous bike path from Ewa to Aloha Stadium.
Your support at the meeting would help make sure this resolution is adopted and help push the City to repair the path.
Ewa Neighborhood Board, Thursday 8/9 7:00pm, at Ewa Beach Public and School Library, 91-950 North Rd, Ewa Beach
John put together this Google folder with the proposed resolution and pictures of the trail condition for everyone to look.
