Background information:

For the past 3 years, Sen. Shimabukuro, Women of Wai`anae, Nani O Wai`anae, Teach for America/Be the Change, the Wai`anae Boys & Girls Club, and many others have participated in efforts to improve the “People’s Path” along the Wai`anae Coast.  Volunteers conducted several pathway beautifications at Maili Point and Sewer’s Beach, and several individuals have dedicated themselves to continue the effort on a weekly basis.  Sen. Shimabukuro also obtained a $5,000 grant from AlohaCare to help support the effort.    (See posting re: Nani O Waianae April 26 Beach Clean-Up for more information on the “People’s Path.”)

In addition to the community’s efforts, and state has planned a “Leeward Bikeway”, which comes into the Wai`anae Coast and ends at Lualualei Naval Road.  Below is a map of the planned bikeway from the Department of Transportation (DOT) (Click on the map to enlarge).  Contact information for the DOT is also below.
