Traffic Safety Update

By Airman 1st Class Tristan Biese | 633 Air Base Wing Public Affairs | March 7, 2018

JOINT BASE LANGLEY-EUSTIS, Va. —

U.S. Air Force Airmen assigned to the 633rd Civil Engineer Squadron finished installing new signs on the intersection of Hotel and Juliet taxiways and Lee Road at Joint Base Langley-Eustis, Virginia, Feb. 23, 2018.

“Due to an increase of people not stopping at the signs, it was brought to our attention that the old signs may not have been informative enough,” said Master Sgt. Jennifer Herr, 1st Operations Support Squadron deputy airfield manager.

In order to keep individuals safe, the new signs now indicate more clearly where to stop when an aircraft is crossing the road from either the runway or the NASA hangars.

“Just because you haven’t seen an aircraft cross by, that doesn’t mean it won’t happen,” said 1st Lt. Kelsey Applegate, 1st OSS airfield operations officer. “Don’t get too familiar with what you usually see, just be ready to see an aircraft at any time. Every time you pass by there, you should look left and right, and check out the signs.”  

When driving on that road, it is important to treat those intersections just like any other intersections on or off base. Individuals should slow down and make sure the lights are not red before continuing.

According to Herr, security forces will be monitoring that area more heavily with increased patrols and they will also be ticketing individuals who are not abiding by the lights and signs posted in the area.
