HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

New security procedures put in place Thursday, caused traffic delays for drivers headed onto Redstone Arsenal.

Arsenal officials said gate guards started using new fielding equipment that help them spot counterfeit badges and expired or revoked credentials. 

"Our gate procedures aren't at an acceptable level to keep our Arsenal secure. While employee convenience is important, safety and security are our top priorities," said Garrison Commander Col. Bill Marks.

Officials advised Arsenal workers to adjust their travel routines and to have their credentials ready when they get to a gate.
