The Draft Right-of-Way Widths for Planned Streets is available for the public’s review

Conceptual rendering: Right-of-Way uses

HONOLULU- The City and County of Honolulu Department of Transportation Services (DTS), in coordination with the Department of Planning and Permitting (DPP) and with funding from the Oahu Metropolitan Planning Organization (Oahu MPO), is reviewing and updating its Right-of-Way Widths for Planned Streets. This update includes Rights-of-Way maps that reflect current conditions, land use and multimodal plans, as well as street type assignments to define priorities and guide implementation of future improvements in alignment with Honolulu’s Complete Streets ordinance.

“Our City streets represent a large portion of City land assets,” says DTS Deputy Director Jon Nouchi. “It is imperative that we use these valuable corridors to their highest and greatest use, to implement Complete Streets which provide equitable access across all modes and for all abilities, including pedestrians, bicycles, cars, trucks, and buses.”

Complete Streets principles encourage appropriate street designs based on intended use and that promote multimodal solutions to balance the needs of all roadway users. The City’s
Complete Streets Design Manual identifies eight different street types, including: Boulevard/Parkway, Avenue, Main Street, Street, Mall, Rural Road, Lane/Alley, and Scenic Byway.

Within the updated Right-of-Way maps, a new street type – Major Street – is introduced to represent low speed neighborhood streets where pedestrian movement is a priority. DTS is requesting input on the preliminary street type assignments shown on the draft Right-of-Way maps presented here:
