HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Drivers should expect some big changes on a major roadway starting Monday as the City and County of Honolulu puts its finishing touches on a new protected bike lane.
On-street parking on King Street, between Alapai and Pensacola Streets, will be available in marked stalls adjacent to the protected bike lane. Drivers are expected to pay for parking during posted times using meters on the curb. Parking is prohibited from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m.
The city urges drivers to merge one lane to the right well in advance of the parked car. Those turning left off of King Street should turn from the lane next to the protected bike lane.
The city also reminds drivers not to drive or park on the King Street protected bike lane. Green paint signifies potential conflict zones such as driveways and street intersections.
The protected bike lane is expected to launch Dec. 6 with a grand opening celebration ride.
