HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Redstone Arsenal officials have been monitoring trafficflow during the peak commute hours. They have determined that many drivers maybenefit by using a route other than through Gate 9, which is the Arsenal's mosttraffic-heavy gate.

"We're still seeing a backup at Gate 9 during the morningrush hours," said Redstone Arsenal spokesman, Chris Colster. "At other gates,traffic is much lighter, so we encourage each driver to take a look at his orher route in the morning and see if they might adjust what they're doing."

Redstone officials said they are in the process of hiringnew gate guards.
