Kwik Trip station proposed layout. Access to the station from Knowles Avenue is enabled by a low speed limit and lack of a median on North Knowles Avenue. The intent is to use signage initially to control entry and exit directions at that exit. A much wider entry and exit entrance is intended to attract the main volume of traffic using the station off of Highway 64. The predicted travel pattern of semi trailers does not appear to interfere with traffic outside of the station.  Submitted map
