A new stoplight will go "hot" this week in anticipation of the added traffic that comes from the opening of a new Kennewick Theater near 395.

Everyone is excited for the new Fairchild Movie Theater next to Walmart off 395 in Kennewick but anyone who lives in the area like myself knows that traffic congestion will be heightened.

There is no official opening date of the new Cinema but the new traffic light will go active this week.

If you travel along 27th, you'll notice the new light is located at 27th and South Olson Street and be prepared to stop once the light comes on.
