Traffic jams were the big story coming out of today’s grand opening of Kanata’s Tanger Outlets shopping complex.  Cars were backed up on the Queensway all the way to Bayshore at one point this morning.

The traffic was so busy that OC Transpo buses were detoured around the route, and police started directing traffic to park at Canadian Tire Centre.  Shuttle buses were available to take shoppers across the bridge to the outlets.  (There are no sidewalks on the Huntmar overpass, making for a dangerous situation.)

Besides traffic and parking issues, there were complaints about bathrooms and about a lack of deals.
