Several motorists wait in traffic near the Conway Commons on Monday afternoon. Several last-minute Christmas shoppers have complained on social media of the traffic issues near the shopping center.

Procrastination has led to several Conway residents taking to social media to vent their frustrations with traffic while out doing some last-minute Christmas shopping.

Most of the complaints have come from congestion surrounding the Conway Commons on Oak Street and Amity Road.

The Conway Police Department calls of service log shows officers responded to a report of “traffic problem-control,” around 1:37 p.m. in the 1200 block of East Oak Street, however, no report was filed.

Currently, a live traffic map from Google shows many spots of congestion, and slow traffic, on Oak Street.

Tab's Tower

"Most of the complaints have come from congestion surrounding the Conway Commons on Oak Street and Amity Road".

I wonder why Townsell didn't have the city erect his Christmas tower at Conway Commons where all the shoppers are, rather than the edge of downtown.

Growing pains

what we are seeing is the direct result of poor planning. The city has grown faster than the streets have. Now we have more cars than the little horse trails can handle.

I can see a much need City Street Dept. Project.

Seems like the new I 40 overpass that will connect Conway Commons to the proposed "poorly named" Central Landing needs to have already been built will an additional couple of lanes add to Amity connecting to Dave Ward drive as well.
