Current plans call for the new Costco Wholesale to be located off of 53rd Street on Fairhaven Road in Davenport. With only two approaches, both to the south planned for 53rd Street, the potential for traffic gridlock and public safety issues are inevitable.
The Davenport Fire Station No. 8 proximate, need to have access to emergency situations, but this road design is certainly suspect. The proof is a reality that can be seen by a visit. Please drive out on 53rd Street between Jersey Ridge Road and Elmore Avenue, now through Christmas.
Costco has planned 850 parking spaces plus semis running from 4 a.m. to 10 p.m. Is this really something northeast Davenport needs? Let’s take another look at accessibility and maybe another location.
