Redstone Arsenal opens gate 3, gate 8 reverts to pre-COVID operational times

Redstone Arsenal Garrison Commander Col. Glen Mellor said the arsenal continues to analyze and assess traffic flow requirements.

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — Starting April 10, Redstone Arsenal's gate 8 will return to pre-COVID-19 operational times, 5:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily.

This comes as more guards will be placed at gate three prior to it reopening on April 12.

The arsenal said Gate 3 Redstone Road will be open Monday through Friday from 5:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. for inbound traffic and from 5:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. for outbound traffic.

Redstone Arsenal Garrison Commander Col. Glen Mellor said the arsenal continues to analyze and assess traffic flow requirements.

“The opening of gate 3 should be a welcomed change to those commuting from southeast Huntsville or perhaps those who work on the southern part of the Arsenal,” said Mellor.
