PETERSBURG, Va. (AP) - Fort Lee officials are warning visitors to expect long lunchtime and morning waits at access gates on Fridays.
July 12 was the first of 11 weekly furloughs ordered by the Department of Defense as part of automatic budget cuts that took effect in April.
Fort Lee officials say some motorists were stuck in traffic for close to an hour during the morning commute. Delays also were experienced during lunch hours.
Fort Lee Provost Marshal Maj. David C. Martin says he understands the frustration following angry social media posts and questions from those who work on base.
In a release, Martin urges motorists to carpool as much as possible to ease congestion around the base and encourages works to bring their lunch so they won't need to leave during the day.
