Base exercise may tangle up traffic this week

FORT WORTH -- Traffic may get complicated around Naval Air Station Fort Worth this week during an annual anti-terrorism and security exercise.

The exercise, which will last through Saturday, is to practice anti-terrorism tactics and train Navy security forces to respond to threats to installations, according to base spokesman Don Ray.

"This is a regularly scheduled Navy event and is not in response to any specific threat," Ray said.

Access to the base may be delayed, some facilities may be closed at times and traffic will likely back up around the base, Ray said.
