Wal-Mart is externalizing the road work on to the city, and there has never even been a feasibility study...
Also, they want to "minimize the green time" for the traffic light on Hover at Nelson road. This will cause congestion on Hover.
Placing lights at 1/4 mile apart causes congestion and accidents. (The traffic engineer said there are a lot of accidents at Mtn. View and Hover due in part to the 1/4 mile spacing on 15th Ave.) Wal-Mart wants to put in a light 1/4 mile north of the one on Nelson, and 1/4 mile south of the one on Rogers.
There will be five other businesses with the Wal-Mart. Here are some
