City reviewing traffic congestion at the Walmart plaza

Published on

City staff is reviewing traffic congestion in and out of the Walmart Plaza.

A report was requested in November by Coun. Mike Stark, who said the plaza’s limited exit points are such that a dangerous situation could develop if the area ever needed to be evacuated.

Walmart and its neighbouring retail stores are largely landlocked by highways 402 and 40, making Quinn Drive the only road in and out.

During the Christmas shopping rush car lineups frequently backed up onto the road.

Stark told The Journal last week staff is preparing a report for council.
