  1. I’m concerned about all the
    traffic the Cosco and all the retail etc. will bring to that
    intersection at Olive and 170. Are there plans to address that.

    1. Hi Jean, The traffic is going to increase a lot, sorry to say. I don’t know what they are going to do about the traffic and I don’t see any more lanes being added. One thing is for sure is that we will all need to calculate extra time when driving through this part of town. Thank you for commenting and have a nice day.
