TRAFFIC ALERT: Lejeune Traffic Backed Up For I-D Check

Commuters in Jacksonville ran into serious delays Thursday morning getting on base.

Camp Lejeune spokesman Nat Fahy said there was an identification check in operation.

"This is a tool used to enforce base regulation and evaluate potential threats, " said Fahy. "However today, there is no cause of concern."

Some drivers said they sat in traffic for nearly 2 hours Thursday morning trying to get on base.
