Update 6–Hwy. 1 Pfeiffer Canyon Bridge 4th Supply Convoy 6.15.17.doc

The noon opening for Paul’s slide tomorrow, Wednesday, June 7, is still on but this may cause delays to and from the coast.

Hi all!

So our peak training season started June 1 and will last through end of
July. There will be period temporary road closures along
Nacimiento-Fergusson Road and other on-post roads to allow for military
traffic. I try my best to get info out on Facebook (it’s the only social
media platform I use) when I actually get info from staff.

On June 7, the Mission Rd and Nacimiento Ferguson Rds will be closed from
1130-1330 or possibly longer due to the significant military activities.
However, the police may allow for public to pass as long as they can control
the situation. There will also be a loud noises due to explosives used by
Air Force.

Public can call me with garrison questions and the dispatch office for road
conditions: 31-386-2513. Dispatch is operated 24/7.

V/R,
