Plan for new Shelby Farms agreement announced

Traffic congestion around Shelby Farms has been an increasing problem, with traffic often bottlenecking at Walnut Grove and Farm Road.

Mayor A C Wharton appointed a 17-member group to study the problem and come up with a solution.

In an announcement Wednesday, a plan will be announced that includes a new road that would serve both Whitten and Sycamore View, and then merge with Walnut Grove at a new intersection.

The speed limit will be 40 miles per hour, and the road will contain 4 lanes, not 6 as was recommended. There will also be crossings designed for pedestrians and horse riders.
