Mayor Kirk Caldwell, City & County of Honolulu

Aiea – The Pearl Harbor Bike Path will be closed for maintenance Monday, August 7, through Thursday, August 31 between Lehua Avenue and Hekaha Street. In addition, nearby Neal S. Blaisdell Park will be closed during the same time period for landscaping, painting, and repairs to park amenities.

 Signs are now posted on the Pearl Harbor Bike Path and at Neal S. Blaisdell Park advising the public of the closures. Bicyclists will be detoured onto Kamehameha Highway for the closed section of the bike path.

The closures come after Mayor Kirk Caldwell signed a grant of easement agreement between the City and County of Honolulu and the U.S. Navy on July 20 that allows the Department of Transportation Services to manage a large section of the Pearl Harbor Bike Path. In addition to maintenance work, enforcement of the city’s Stored Property Ordinance will be performed by the Department of Facility Maintenance during the closures.

 When the bike path and park are reopened on Friday, September 1, the city will continue to monitor the area for Stored Property Ordinance violations and continue to enforce park closure hours from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m.
