HONOLULU -

The meeting will provide updates to the public about the project including design concepts and installation schedule.

The cycle track, also known as a protected bike lane, will be on the left, or mauka, side of King Street from Alapai Street to Isenberg Street.  On-street parking will be moved into the second lane from the mauka curb and the protected bike lane will be between the mauka curb and the on-street parking.

Green paint will be installed in conflict zones, such as driveways and intersections, to caution motorists and bicyclists to potential conflicting traffic in those areas.  More details about the project will be available at the public meeting.

Mayor Kirk Caldwell has been an advocate of protected bike lanes.

"The King Street cycle track will encourage more people to bike by giving them a safe place to ride on the street," said Caldwell.

The King Street Cycle Track project public meeting will offer the community an opportunity to see the plan for King Street, provide comments and ask questions.
