Less Costco Traffic Than Expected
Before Costco was built in Yawatashi, locals were worried about traffic problems getting worse than they already are in the area. Weekday traffic has gradually gotten back to about previous levels. Weekends, however, are another matter.
Saturday and Sunday are the busiest days of the week for Costco and for the roads leading into the Yawatashi store. Traffic can be backed up at times from Costco all the way back to Route 1. All other roads leading into Costco are almost at equal levels throughout the day, but mostly around midday. Later in the evening traffic gets better as most shoppers get their purchasing done earlier in the day before dinner time.
