Bicyclists will soon have more safe space on Oahu's roads.
Honolulu released its new island-wide bicycle master plan which includes 300 miles of new bike lanes, paths and routes across Oahu.
"Safety was at the top, people want to ride their bikes but they don't feel safe," said Chris Sayers, from the Honolulu Department of Transportation.
Sayers unveiled the new island wide plan at Wednesday night's Oahu Metropolitan Planning Meeting.
Some roads that could see new bike lanes include Waialae Avenue, Date Street and Kalakaua Avenue. The master plan also adds markings on major roadways to remind drivers to share the road and new bike lockers and parking near rail and bus stops.
These are proposals Hawaii Bicycling League Executive Director Chad Taniguchi is excited about.
"It's all about awareness for the drivers," said Taniguchi. "Having the bike box there for people to make the turn, having the marks on the road letting drivers know bikes belong on the road."
The project costs 68 million dollars, paid for by taxpayers' dollars. They will be incorporated over a span of ten years when the money is available.
