Albany --  For years, people have complained that there's no cut-through from the Albany Mall to Wal-Mart. That may be about to change.  

A study on Nottingham Way traffic congestion shows  that widening Nottingham to six lanes may not be the best solution, so now, engineers will look at extending either Westover Road or Archwood Drive to Ledo Road.  

"The first part of the study let us realize that even if we widened Nottingham to six lanes, we're still going to have capacity problems in a couple years down the road," said City Engineer Bob Alexander.  

The total cost of the study will now be about $120,000.
