UPDATE: The Pensacola Protected Bike Lane celebrated the official opening on Friday, September 25. The two-way protected bike lane spans from Wilder Street to Kapiolani Boulevard on the Diamond Head side of the street. This project is one of the Department of Transportation Services complete streets initiatives, and a step towards increasing the connectivity and safety of our community. Learn more.
The Pensacola project will look similar to the King Street and South Street protected bike lanes (completed in 2014 and 2017): a two-way protected lane on a one-way street. This means that, while drivers can only travel in the mauka to makai direction, cyclists can ride both ways. This design provides the necessary space and protection for cyclists while reducing the risk of collisions with vehicles.
The Pensacola protected bike lane will create a safe bicycle route to Makiki and Ala Moana/Kakaako, connecting riders to their homes, places of employment, and popular destinations such as Ala Moana Beach Park and Ala Moana Shopping Center. It will conveniently intersect King Street, one of the most popular routes for bike commuters.
Several Biki Stops are already located on or within close proximity to the route. See map.
