Redstone Arsenal changing hours at three gates

HUNTSVILLE — Redstone Arsenal will change the operating hours at three of its gates at 12:01 a.m. Jan. 27. These changes are necessary to accommodate the reduction in guard force moves by  the Army's Installation Management Command.  

"As we implement directed manpower reductions, we must reassess how we provide services and rebalance mission requirements with resources." said Col. Bill Marks, Garrison Commander, Redstone Arsenal. "Changes to our gates always create inconvenience and frustration for everyone involved so it will take teamwork and patience to work through this."

Gate 8 will be closed Monday through Friday but will be open on Saturdays and Sundays from 5:30 a.m. until midnight. 

Gates 3 and 7 will be open for incoming and outgoing traffic from 5:30 a.m. until 1 p.m. but will only be open for outgoing traffic after that. 

Gate 3 will be closed to outgoing traffic at 6 p.m. and Gate 7 will be closed to outgoing traffic at 9 p.m., Monday through Friday.
