REDSTONE ARSENAL, Ala.- According to a message from Marshall Space Flight Center, Gate 9 at Redstone Arsenal is now re-open to inbound and outbound traffic.  It was closed due to a suspected gas leak. People are still used to urge caution.

The following information is from a previous story:

U.S. Army Garrison-Redstone Arsenal closed the Gate 9 inbound and outbound lanes Thursday afternoon due to a punctured gas line.  The closure affects Rideout Road from Homestead Road on the Arsenal to the Redstone Gateway complex immediately outside of Gate 9 and Goss Road from the Golf course to Gate 9.

Emergency and Law Enforcement will remain in place until the gas lines are shut-off and residual gas vapors have dissipated to safe levels. Drivers are encouraged to find alternative routes to enter or exit the Arsenal until further notice.
