HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

With the recent gate changes, drivers have seen some major traffic backups leading onto Redstone Arsenal.

Huntsville Mayor Tommy Battle said his office had gotten dozens of complaints about the traffic situation which continues to leave drivers at a standstill nearly every morning. Mayor Battle's office said they're urging people to get in touch with their congressmen.

Congressman Mo Brooks posted on his Facebook page that he reached out to "Army Installation and Management Command in Texas to ensure they understood the ramifications of their budgetary decisions." Congressman Brooks continued by saying he will work with Mayor Battle, Redstone Arsenal Command, and Army installation command to fix this problem.

Senator Jeff Sessions also claimed he reached out to Mayor Battle's office regarding the traffic problem. A representative from Senator Richard Shelby's office said that because of Shelby's efforts to negotiate the Fiscal Year 2014 government funding bill, "critical defense and space programs in Huntsville remain funded."
