    JOINT BASE MYER-HENDERSON HALL, Va. - As Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall moves forward with its Automated Installation Entry (AIE II Plus) system upgrades and testing, traffic may back up at the gates, especially during peak traffic times. This has been the case in recent weeks at the Myer/Henderson Hall gates. Personnel and visitors are asked to be mindful of and obey Arlington County traffic regulations in these areas and, especially, of the surrounding neighborhoods.

    At Henderson Hall’s Gate 1, for example, motorists have been witnessed making sudden U-turns and traveling the wrong way on a one-way street in an attempt to escape traffic back-ups. Arlington County Police were notified of these infractions and have been citing violators.

    Additionally, there have been complaints from residents in the neighborhood just outside Gate 1, to include South Orme, South Ode and South Oak Streets, of excessive speed on these streets, littering (including cigarette butts) and loud music blaring from vehicles as they approach the gate, especially in the early morning.

    Arlington police have also received a number of traffic complaints from residents along South 2nd Street, between Glebe Road and the joint base, of speeding and reckless driving. Arlington police are asking all personnel to be mindful of their speed along South 2nd Street as they will be stepping up enforcement in the coming weeks, especially as they school year begins.

    Personnel and visitors are asked to be mindful of all our neighbors in Arlington County and Southwest D.C. and to practice being a good neighbor. Don’t speed, litter or play music excessively loud while driving through these neighborhoods and obey all traffic signs.

    For more information, please call the JBM-HH military police desk at 703-696-3525.
