The U.S. Navy will conduct an explosives training exercise outside the Alaska Capitol on Thursday, March 10, from 1-4 p.m.
Juneau Police Department will have community service officers in the area to help with traffic control as JPD, Alaska State Capitol Security, and Navy Explosive Ordnance Disposal technicians hold a drill involving a mock improvised explosive device in vehicle.
The Capitol’s daily business activities will not be impacted, the Navy said, but the drill will require traffic limits on 4th St. between Main St. and Seward St.
Navy ordnance disposal personnel are in Juneau participating in Exercise Arctic Edge 2022. Their team is conducting Expeditionary Mine Countermeasures operations in the Gastineau Channel.
AE22 is a U.S. Northern Command exercise that takes place every two years, providing training for participants in locations across Alaska.
