KAKAAKO, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A Kakaako street will be closed Saturday as the city begins construction of a new protected bike lane.
The city says the new lane will allow bicyclists to travel mauka and makai on the Ewa side of South Street.
However, parking on the Ewa side will be eliminated.
Metered parking stalls on the Diamond Head side will remain.
The new lane is expected to open in May and will connect to the bike lane on King Street. Materials for this project costs the city about $80,000.
