PINE BELT (WDAM) -

This is a news release from Camp Shelby.

The Camp Shelby Joint Forces Training Center will conduct live fire, maneuver, and aviation activities at its ranges from December 2016 through January
2017.

Due to this ongoing training, the Pinebelt community should be aware of various gate closures and temporary barricades throughout the Camp Shelby training areas.
A bridging project is underway on the South Tank Trail, which will cause the closure of that road.

This development replaces two existing structures located along the South Tank Trail and is scheduled for completion by March 2017.
Firing will be conducted at the East Air-to-Ground range throughout December and January. Several gate closures and temporary barricades should be expected throughout the range complex and training areas during this time.

These areas are off-limits to the public and civilians are not allowed to cross any closed gates or temporary barricades.
Over the next few months, military units may also conduct driving operations throughout the training area and along public roads at night without headlights, excluding Highways 49 and 98. The public is advised to proceed with caution and be aware of these maneuvers as well as traffic control points.

Road Closures:
December 14-16, 2016
Roads affected: 305I, 305K, 305K1, 367C, 311, 311B, 369B, 369D and 304/Davis Range Road
