The Islands of Aloha should see more bike and pedestrian friendly streets in the future now that Hawaii Governor Laura Lingle signed SB 718, the Hawaii Complete Streets Bill, into law on May 6th. The new law requires Hawaii’s Departments of Transportation to establish policies to accommodate all road users, including cyclists and pedestrians, in transportation projects. The bill is a major victory for the Hawaii Bicycling League, PATH (Peoples Advocacy For Trails Hawaii), and other members of the One Voice for Livable Islands coalition. See hbl.org for more details.
