Status: Statutory 30-day public review and comment period starts; comments are due by April 22, 2014. Please send comments to the proposing/determination agency and consultant.

The North Shore Greenway – Phase IV will be the final phase of bike path which will run east from Ulupua Place and connect with the existing path directly east of HA Baldwin Park in Paia, Maui, Hawai‘i.

The proposed project runs on the makai side of Hana Highway with two (2) proposed easements affecting Maui Country Club and HA Baldwin Park. The purpose of the proposed project is to complete the North Shore Greenway project in order to create an alternative route of transportation for pedestrians and bikers. The proposed project involves a new eight (8) foot wide asphaltic concrete pavement set approximately 7.5 feet away from the lane of vehicular travel. The proposed project also involves the construction of a drainage way crossing to extend eight (8) feet from the existing culvert to enable Greenway construction atop of it.

  3. I would like to go on record in support of the Northshore Greenway project. It makes complete sense to move forward towards completion of this project that has taken to my knowledge 22 years to complete. With the improvement of technology and the advancement of bicycles as alternative means of transportation it only makes sense.
    Hawaii is the most oil‐dependent state in the Unites States, with more than 95% of its energy demand coming from imported fossil fuels, resulting in the highest gasoline and electricity prices in America1
    Furthermore, Hawaii’s dependence on petroleum, as its single source of energy, makes its economic security vulnerable to changes in world petroleum markets. Hawaii annually sends billions of dollars
    overseas and out of its local economy to support its petroleum needs. The vast majority of Hawaii’s fuel for electricity generation, as well as transportation, is imported into the State from outside sources.By encouraging Hawaii drivers to adopt an alternatives to conventional ICE vehicles, Hawaii’s dependence on imported petroleum can be greatly reduced. Bike and walking paths allow alternatives to
    Hawaii has a State Bicycle Plan which was established in 1994. It is now 2014 and Hawaii is ranked #35 out of 50 as a Bike Friendly States by the League of American Bicyclists established in 1880.
    Let’s support the State Bicycle Plan and complete the final portion of the Northshore Greenway Project and bring Hawaii closer to the goals of BIKE PLAN HAWAII in establishing bicycling as a safe and convenient mode of transportation for visitors and community members alike. I support this project an any other project that will enhance safe convenient Bicycling.
