Pedestrian & Roadway Improvements

  • Collaborating improvements with the state Department of Transportation (DOT) and the City and County of Honolulu Department of Planning and Permitting (DPP) traffic review branch.
  • Creating a pedestrian-friendly, walkable community with new public sidewalks, better lighting, and enhanced landscaping, along with connections to and from transit facilities, shopping centers, parks and schools.
  • Developing connectivity by dedicated public access to better connect the surrounding community and neighboring property owners.
  • Reducing new trips by providing homes and retail establishments within walking distance of existing bus stops and the proposed Pearlridge rail transit station.
  • To relieve traffic, a new “Main Street” will be created through the Site, providing an additional link from Moanalua Road to Ka’onohi Street.
  • Widening Moanalua Rd. and Ka’onohi St. to add additional through and turn lanes.
  • Create additional lanes by removing the median along the northbound approach of Ka’onohi Street.
  • Adding two new, fully signalized intersections and crosswalks at Main Street with Moanalua Road and at Main Street with Ka’onohi Street.
  • New decelerate/accelerate right-turn pocket lanes at the project’s entrances.
  • Approximately 1/3 acre of land dedicated for public right of way (road widening).
  • Approximately 1.5 acres of land dedicated for internal public access roadways
