Right-of-Way Widths for Planned Street Improvements
By Chris Clark, Chief Planner Department of Transportation Services
Topic: Right-of-Way Widths for Planned Street Improvements
Oahu’s many streets support different modes of transportation and comprise a large portion of the City’s land assets. As we grow and preferred transportation methods evolve over time, it is essential that future plans be updated to accommodate and promote smart, efficient travel. When space is limited, how do we determine what goes where?
The updated Right-of-Way Widths for Planned Street Improvements defines priorities and guides the implementation of future improvements in alignment with Honolulu’s Complete Streets ordinance. It is a comprehensive assessment of current right-of-way widths, land use, and multimodal plans, as well as a guide for improving street conditions to meet public health and safety standards. The document introduces Street Types assignments based on the character, context, function, and long-term goals for all streets on Oahu, ensuring our streets can continue to sustainably accommodate and balance the needs of all users.
