Remington Walmart Traffic Study Is Out- The Search For Missing Cars Begins

Remington 25th Street Station Traffic Study Released- The Search For Missing Cars Begins

The ‘Draft’ Traffic Impact Study (TIS) for the proposed 25th Street Station big box development project in Remington was recently released and area residents are raising a lot of concerns.  The most intriguing of which might be -What’s the deal with the missing cars?

On the new site EXIT 6, a campaign initiated by residents of Remington to deal with issues raised from the proposed 25th Street Station development and traffic, the question is asked, “Who can solve this mystery?The Lost Cars of Huntingdon Avenue”.

Apparently, according to the study, cars entering the area via Huntingdon Avenue actually disappear, rather than accumulate, making it something akin to the Bermuda Triangle.  Recent posts on the EXIT 6 site related to the missing cars and other concerns provide interesting commentary on the study.  To check out EXIT 6, CLICK HERE.

Other community issues that have been raised about the traffic study include the observation that no dates and times of car counts are provided, the unsubstantiated assumption that 25% of shoppers will walk, bike, or take the bus to the site, the lack of projections for rush hour, Saturdays and holidays and the fact that the information is inconsistent with other Baltimore area Lowes and Walmart stores.

Post Update: In an analysis of the traffic study done by the Mobtown Shank, it is reported that traffic will increase 129 times from what it is now in the area on weekends.  For more information, CLICK HERE.
