Traffic to slow for work on CPX Gate
March 4, 2009
PYEONGTAEK, South Korea — Traffic on a section of Camp Humphreys’ CPX Road will be cut to one lane starting Wednesday as workers replace security barriers at the CPX Gate, officials said Monday.
The project is to finish about a month later.
Workers will replace automated pop-up barriers designed to hinder vehicles. The replacement is part of the regularly scheduled upkeep of the post’s security systems.
During the project, the road will be one-way for outbound and inbound, but priority will go to outbound vehicles, said Bob Aldridge, chief of the access control branch in the U.S. Army Garrison-Humphreys emergency services directorate.
That’s to avoid backing up traffic onto Freedom Road, the post’s main artery, he said.
A flag man will control traffic from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday.
CPX Road will be closed to inbound traffic starting at 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and all day on weekends. When CPX Road is closed, all vehicles will be routed through the CPX Commercial Gate, which is about a hundred yards from the CPX Gate.
