A new traffic light has been installed near the access points to Menards and Costco, on Northdale Boulevard near Main Street. An estimated 16,000 vehicles travel along Northdale Boulevard each day making it a hot spot for congestion. The new traffic signal will improve traffic flow in the area. New medians have also been installed, which are designed to improve safety and traffic flow.
The addition of the traffic signal is part of a broader plan to enhance traffic flow in the busy Riverdale Shopping area. In 2018, an assessment of the area identified various traffic concerns and priorities, with this traffic signal being one of them. To complete all of the suggested enhancements, a public/private partnership will be needed.
