Hudson Police Department to Closely Monitor Traffic During Marijuana Dispensary Grand Opening
HUDSON — Chief Michael D. Burks, Sr. and the Hudson Police Department report that they will be closely monitoring the flow of traffic surrounding today’s recreational marijuana dispensary opening.
Temescal Wellness, 252 Coolidge St., will open for business today, and Hudson Police will be on-site assisting with traffic flow in the event there are large crowds and accompanying traffic.
Parking for the dispensary will be located at a satellite lot at 62 Packard St., and customers will be transported via shuttle to the dispensary. Individual drive-up traffic, and all walk-up traffic is prohibited until further notice. Parking will also be restricted on nearby streets.
Customers will be provided with a ticket when they arrive at the satellite lot, which will be required for entry to the dispensary. A tent and portable toilets will set up at Temescal’s location.
“Our officers will be actively participating in today’s dispensary opening to ensure that everything goes as smoothly as possible,” Chief Burks said. “We’ll also be evaluating the flow of traffic throughout the day to determine whether any modifications may be needed to maintain safety and improve traffic conditions.”
