Auto Dealers Upset With Rothesay Avenue Traffic Lights

The Saint John Auto Dealers Association has sent an open letter to Common Council complaining about the traffic tieups with the lights at Rothesay Avenue and Ashburn Lake Road by Deluxe French Fries and looking for a permanent solution.

The auto dealers claim businesses along Rothesay Avenue are getting fed up with the lights which are designed to lead up to Costco and Eastpoint from the highway. 

The letter states drivers, at times, have to wait through 3 or 4 light changes before they can make their left turn. 

This was supposed to be a temporary fix but it's been six years now and the auto dealers say there appears to be little concern after a meeting with the mayor and no time frame for constructing a permanent intersection with better traffic flow.
