The idea of a third Walmart coming to Abilene has given many people mixed feelings.

The store has plans to build in a field near the intersection of Oldham Lane and Loop 322. People say that area is already a hectic spot and they are concerned with what the Walmart will do to the traffic situation. They say if a Walmart comes, they hope a traffic light will too.

A TxDOT project is currently underway in that area to make the access road one-way. They are also working to move off-ramps further away from the access road so drivers have time to slow down before reaching the intersection.
