Commuters are instructed to be cautious of unexploded ordinance (UXO) investigative fieldwork continuing along AEDC’s Wattendorf Highway. The work will take place within a 15-acre area between Hap Arnold Drive and UTSI Road intersections. A UXO team will conduct operations Wednesdays through Sundays between 6:30 a.m. – 5 p.m. to minimize the impact on traffic. Commuters may experience some delays in traffic flow during the period of work and should slow down and use caution when approaching the area. This work is part of the Air Force’s Military Munitions Response Program (MMRP) continuing effort to investigate historical training ranges. The work is to remove explosives from the Army at Camp Forrest during WWII. The UXO team will also work in additional one-acre grid areas on three Camp Forrest historical ranges; the northern artillery impact area, the old impact area south and the machine gun range. Wattendorf Highway area is on part of the old impact area south historical range. There is no danger for commuters traveling through this area.
