A local poultry company is moving a feed mill and it could affect you.

Over the next six months, Pilgrims Pride is expected to move their feed mill production from Broadway to their current Harrisonburg facility.

No jobs will be eliminated, but it will cause more traffic in an already congested intersection.

A Pilgrims Pride spokesperson says it won't cause a problem, but a local business isn't so sure.

"They can get backed up quite a bit the traffic light holds em up and with the train it makes matters worse waiting there through the light," Vicky Shockey says.

Shockey is hoping the extra traffic will boost business. Pilgrims Pride says the move will make the company more competitive because it's a newer facility and more centrally located.
