Navy exercise may cause traffic delays around Seabee Base

GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

GULPORT, MS (WLOX) - Residents may see traffic delays Thursday morning around the Navy base thanks to a security exercise.

Naval Construction Battalion Center and Gulfport first responders will conduct an exercise around the normally closed 26th Street gate, near the RV Park onboard the Seabee Base from 8:00 to 10:00 AM.

The Naval Center says although steps have been taken to reduce public disruptions, there may be heavier traffic or delays around bases, as well as more security in the area.

According to the Naval Center, the exercise is designed to help Navy personnel train to handle possible threats. These exercises are regularly scheduled.
