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 shut down gates and lanes due to amandate by the US Army Installation Management Command to reduce its securityguard force in January. Colster suggests driver look at options other than Gate9, as it may save them some time.

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