At Kirtland

The 377th Air Base Wing and Kirtland Air Force Base will participate in an exercise Tuesday and Wednesday.

In response to this initiative, base personnel may see increased emergency vehicle use. The South Gate will be closed from 3:30-5:30 p.m. Tuesday. Please plan accordingly to avoid any disruption to commutes.

Also, Sandia National Laboratories plans to conduct a controlled explosive test between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. Tuesday at its Coyote test field on the south side.

During this timeframe, people may hear an explosion associated with the experiment. Some black smoke and dust might be visible above the base for a short time following the test.
